White Peacocks

It's the time of year when few bird species are seen. The cardinals and blue jays are hiding in the understory. It's the time of year for butterflies and dragonfiles. I love walking about the wetlands at Green Cay soaking in the flying insects. White Peacocks, Anartia jatrophae, especially seem to be on every plant and twig. This tropical brushfoot butterfly is common in Florida and can be seen all year long. But to me, summer is the time of butterflies. White Peacocks are certainly most plentiful this time of year. Enjoy a few shots I took out on our grassy berm at Green Cay.
