Upper Keys butterflies

They’re a flitty, flighty bunch, Keys butterflies are–much dodgier, faster, less likely to land and pose for portraits than New England butterflies. More, faster predators, maybe? White Peacocks, Gulf Fritillaries, Giant Swallowtails, Julias, Zebra Heliconians (Florida state butterfly – yay!) all sighted yesterday afternoon in Tavernier, plus 3-4 other species I couldn’t identify.
