Morphing Sulphur I believe it's an CloudIess sulphur, I didn't see the catapiler we have several types of sulphur butterflies in the garden I love when I get to see them go through their transition this one is not done yet and it took much longer than the monarch to change. We shall see in about a week I hope. #sulphur #caterpillar #butterflyoftheday #butterflies #butterflylife #butterflylove #butterflyworld #butterflygarden #butterfliesofinstagram #butterfliesofflorida #butterflyconservation #mygarden #tampabay #nature #macro #macrophotography #macro_captures_ #photooftheday #fllife #butterflylife

Many of my friends call my yard “Peggy’s Paradise”. And it IS for me, the honeybees, and the butterflies! Here is a selection from the many videos of butterflies that I took this summer.

Look who came out this morning. The Monarch in my garden I caught morphing into a catapiler five days ago completed metamorpohosis this morning. So happy I captured both moments. _ _ _ #monarchbutterfly #monarch #mygarden #butterflyoftheday #butterflies #butterflylife #butterflyworld #butterfliesofinstagram #butterfliesofflorida #butterflyconservation #nature #naturephotography #bestofthesunshinestate_nature #tampabay #sunshinestate #photooftheday #metamorphosis #lovebutterflies

He was hanging out on a Heliconias plant, I counted 8 monarch cats today ❤️🦋 _ _ _ #monarchbutterfly #monarch #morph #chrysalis #mygarden #butterflyoftheday #butterflies #butterflylife #butterflyworld #mygarden #butterfliesofflorida #butterfliesofinstagram #total_butterflies #tampabay #nature

Happy to say that the Chrysalis we saved out of the yard clippings surrvived...so happy yet sad that I've been down and knocked out with pnemonia and I missed the the entire process. Fluttered up and away into the tallest oak tree hopefully we will meet again in my garden. #monarchbutterfly #monarch #butterflyoftheday #butterflies #lovebutterflies #total_butterflies #butterflylife #mygarden #fllife #tampabay #butterfliesofflorida #butterfliesofinstagram #butterflyworld #yay

Be careful when trimming your bushes my husband found a Monarch Chrysalis that was attached to a lantana bush after it was trimmed. Fingers crossed we saved him from a trip to the dump _ _ _ #monarchbutterfly #monarch #chrysalis #butterflyoftheday #butterflies #butterflylife #gardening #butterfliesofflorida #fllife #mygarden #tampabay

This past weekend I emerged from a section of forest at the GTM Research Reserve and came upon a fantasyland oasis. The sun was shining on a dense stand of Pickerelweed, an aquatic plant with lovely spikes of purple flowers that climb up out of the water. What was most delightful was that there were a dozen butterflies of several different species cavorting around the blooms, happily sipping nectar and playfully interacting with each other like a group of sailors enjoying drinks at a port of call after a long and stressful voyage. I’ve never seen so many swallowtails in one place. I captured this photo of a Palamedes Swallowtail as a memento, but the video of the active scene is recorded in my brain, and I’ve replayed it multiple times.

After about 17 days in the chrysalis, I woke up to a very large, magnificent Giant Swallowtail Butterfly! @the_moth_from_hell After my last 2 slow to go releases, this angel was a breath of fresh air!❤ Surprisingly, Giant have been the easiest to raise from eggs!!! Wild Lime Trees are their favorite host plant.

Hello #butterfly ! I don’t know much about these but I think this is a #laurelswallowtail They seem to love my flowerbed, maybe I can put out some plants that are caterpillar friendly when I spruce up the garden. #floridabutterflies #butterfliesofflorida

I was just remarking earlier this week that I could never get the Zebra Longwing to sit still long enough to take a photograph. My luck changed this morning, however, on a long walk through the forests of the GTM Research Reserve, as this nice specimen sat still JUST long enough to snap a photo. Feast your eyes on the state butterfly of Florida! --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- #zebralongwing #zebralongwingbutterfly #heliconiuscharitonius #heliconius #floridastatebutterfly #butterfliesofinstagram #floridabutterflies #butterfliesofflorida #floridanativebutterflysociety #lovebutterflies #butterfliesofig #butterflylovers #butterflyphotography #butterflyworld #neflorida #wildflorida #nativeflorida #floridainsects #floridanaturephotography #floridanature #jaxnature #northfloridawild #naturalnorthflorida #stjohnscounty #savebutterflies #gtmresearchreserve #guanatolomatomatanzas #pontevedrafl #pontevedrabeach #saveguana

I’ve only seen one Red Admiral this year. Fortunately, it posed for a photo in St. Johns County. Although this species may not be abundant in Northeast Florida, it has a rather large range for a butterfly (swipe), spanning both sides of the Atlantic Ocean, including much of North America and Europe. So you might also see it on your vacation to Italy! -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- #redadmiralbutterfly #admiralbutterfly #redadmiral #vanessaatalanta #butterfliesofinstagram #floridabutterflies #butterfliesofflorida #floridanativebutterflysociety #lovebutterflies #insectlicious #insectagram #lepidopterology #butterfliesofig #butterflylovers #butterflyphotography #butterflyworld #neflorida #wildflorida #nativeflorida #floridainsects #floridanaturephotography #floridanature #floridawildlife #floridawildlifephotography #jaxnature #northfloridawild #naturalnorthflorida #butterflyphotography #stjohnscounty #savebutterflies

Seeing a Gulf Fritillary #butterfly float by in the garden to take a sip of Penta flower nectar makes every sweaty, dirt-soaked garden minute worth it! #gulffritillary #gulffritillarybutterfly #pentaflowers #butterflygarden

We've had so much rain here in the sunshine state I haven't had much butterfly action.

The “dragon” in “dragonfly” suggests something fierce. Most people’s experience with these insects, however, is watching a colorful jewel that glitters as it meanders through the sunny skies above water. That doesn’t sound so menancing—more like prancing. But, check out this Eastern Pondhawk justifying the “hawk” in its name by dismembering a Barred Yellow butterfly (swipe) that may have been too engrossed in sipping nectar.

I once ordered a Tiramisu at a well-regarded restaurant. It looked typical. But when I put a spoonful in my mouth, complex pleasurable sensations coursed through my body. Whoa. That is how it is, sometimes, with Nature. I took this photo of a brown butterfly on a yellow flower in St Johns County. Yawn. But this is a native butterfly, Dorantes Longtail, visiting flowers of the native, Hairypod Cowpea. The relationship is more than just a brief visit to sip nectar. The Hairypod Cowpea is also a host species for the caterpillar of Dorantes Longtail. Accordingly, this butterfly seeks out this plant upon which to lay its eggs and nourish its young. Then, after emerging as a butterfly, it circles back for a sweet treat while pollinating. And notice the ants just below the flower. The Hairypod Cowpea has extrafloral nectaries that secrete a sugary fluid to attract ants whose presence may defend the plant against creatures that would otherwise harm it. Nice! All those layers of ecological complexity are as special as that Tiramisu in my book. LocalNatureRx becomes more interesting when you connect the dots 😊 ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- #vignaluteola #cowpea #doranteslongtail #urbanusdorantes #floridawildflowers #floridanativeplants #floridanativeplantsociety #ixiachapter #floridanature #natureflorida #lovebutterflies #butterfly_n_flower #floridabutterflies #butterfliesofflorida #floridanativebutterflysociety #butterflylovers #butterflyphotography #butterflyworld #neflorida #floridanaturephotography #northfloridawild #nativeflorida #stjohnscounty #naturetherapy #insectsofinstagram #floridainsects #extrafloralnectaries #naturerx #plantinsectinteractions #masterstract

I have so many Spicebush Butterflies right now the Firespike Bushes are a favorite of thiers. I have no Spicebush host plants but I do enjoy seeing them feed in the afternoon on the Firespike. _ _ _ #butterfliesofinstagram #bestofthesunshinestate_nature #nature #butterflygarden #gardening #spicebushswallowtail #lovebutterflies #butterflies # #butterfliesofflorida #butterflyworld #tampabay #sunshinestate #photooftheday #butterflyoftheday

I just bought a “Butterflies of Florida” field guide to get serious in identifying our dainty aerial gems. I’m learning that features on both the top and bottom surfaces of the wings can be important, but that doesn’t really apply to this species. It is tough to confuse this distinctive, yellow Easter Tiger Swallowtail with anything else. Having said that, females of this species do have a dark form that looks similar to several other local butterflies. I’ll have to keep a eye out for that one. The photo showing the top surface of the wings was taken at Julington Durbin Nature Preserve. The one showing the bottom surface of the wings, and feeding at a Buttonbush flower, was photographed at Jennings State Forest.
