Myakka River State Park is Florida's largest at 45 square miles of river, oak hammock and prairie. It is a great birding spot....but on some days you don't see much, so you have time to appreciate the beautiful landscapes. This was a great outing.....late afternoon light and super clouds.
Make sure to get out and see the park....hiking, camping, wildlife, birding, kayak & canoeing, priceless scenery! Enjoy!

The Great Eggfly Butterfly (Hypolimnas bolina) is a member of the nymphalidae family and found in South and SE Asia, Australia, Japan, New Zealand, and islands in the South Pacific.
I found this one in the butterfly garden of The Pullman Resort on China Beach (now called Danang or My Khe Beach) in Danang.
Thanks to my friend, entomologist, Lien Vu, for ID help. I hope to see him soon in Vietnam.....and get some more great butterfly photos. Check out his photos here Lien Vu on P Base And thanks to the beautiful Pullman Resort for their lovely butterfly garden.

Northern Pearly-Eye (Enodia anthedon). Common Nymphalidae family species found in damp, deciduous forests. Likes to perch on trees. I often see then in dark, shady patches....rarely in the sunlight. All these photos taken in Downeast Maine, 2014. Above in the Schoodic district of Acadia National Park.
Taken at the Maine Coast Heritage Trust Preserve on Ripley Neck in Harrington, Maine.
