Zebra Longwing: Florida's State Butterfly

Watched a pair of Zebra Longwing Butterflies (Heliconius charitonia) feeding in the butterfly garden at the Corkscrew Swamp Audubon Sanctuary.

This impressive butterfly is Florida's State Butterfly.

Another fine day in the field!

  1. I did not know this was our state butterfly, and I am a Floridian.

    Thank you for the beautiful photographs and information.
