Some days seem to be better butterfly days than other in My Florida Backyard. Today has been quite good so far, with visits from old friends and new ones.
This little fellow, just an inch or so across, is a Fiery Skipper. I'm sure they've visited before, but this is the first time I've gotten a picture.
Not long after that, the Giant Swallowtail came a-callin' again. He's certainly bigger and showier than the Fiery Skipper, but each butterfly holds its own fascination for me.
The day is still young. Who knows what else it will bring to My Florida Backyard?
