A Walk in the Butterfly Park

This is what our butterfly garden is all about. You never know which butterflies flutter by.

Gulf Frutillaria (Agraulis vanillae). We will explore the Frutilleria, Queen and Monarch in detail later.
 Schaus’ swallowtail (Heraclides aristodemus ponceanus). An endangered species.
Southern White (male)
Long Wing Zebra (Heliconius charithonia). The state butterfly of Florida!
Monarch (Danaus plexippus L.)
White Peacock (Anartia jatrophae). Somewhat rare.
Mangrove Buckeye (Junonia genoveva)
