Gulf Fritillaries

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.
