BUTTERFLIES ON ABACO (9): GULF FRITILLARIES

It’s been a while since any papilionidae made an appearance on these pages – and much longer since a Gulf fritillary  Agraulis vanillae flew in. These very pretty butterflies are far from rare, but like the ATALA hairstreak, they are always a pleasure to see. Here are a few to enjoy.

    • Annoying, aren’t they, with all that restless flittering and fluttering. And if they decided to pause, and you poke the camera lens too close, off they go again. Frustrating. Even birds sit fairly still sometimes… RH
