Florida butterflies

From January 25 to February 2, my son David and I did a road trip to Florida. We were mostly birding but came across nearly 30 species of butterflies in the process.
Several lifers were seen including Ruddy Daggerwing and Cuban Crescent.
The Cuban Crescents were the first known sightings in about 9 years.

  1. We just got back from Florida also. Lots of beautiful butterflys were seen but my identification skills are pretty minimal...

  2. Great to hear that there are butterflies flying somewhere in the world! I would be interested to hear what else you saw.
