This Gulf Fritillary pupated on the side of the Butterfly House.
Here she is just starting to emerge.
No matter how many times I watch butterflies emerge I am always amazed.
I think the underside of the wings are even prettier than the outside…
These 3 pupated in the top of the cage and all 3 emerged within minutes of each other.
The Passion Flower Vine is their larval plant.
These are the flowers.
I’ve got 2 more pots of them started. I hope to put several in the ground in the spring and have them grow around some of the Cabbage Palms.
