Default Butterfy, cant get that name wrong.

I see them flying and for weeks passed by this area.
Finally one landed for some shots.
I think its a peanut butterfly due to it's color.





I have a thing for butterflies.
Cheers.

Great job with the color and detail on these shots. Do you know the plant that he is on?

Those are great shots - I think that's Orange Honeysuckle.

lorenww,

Who doesn't? Great pictures. Especially like the texture and shadows of the first one and the detailed arms-legs-antennas

The plant is called,
Hamelia patens
firebush

I think it is native to Florida, it really does lend nice colors and balance to photos.

Thanks for the comments. I don't say that enough but they are appreciated, I'm a programmer and have been really busy with my company.

The photos are from my daily walks, sitting too much is not so good.

Everyone said Florida was filled with bugs but there are not that many here and you have to look for them.
Not even a mosquito bite for probably 3 months now.
