Zebra Longwing Close-ups

I snapped these shots outside of Everglades National Park recently.  Zebra Longwing Butterfly or Zebra Heliconian (Heliconius charithonia) is the state butterfly of Florida and one of my favorite to see when out and about. They live up to 3 months as an adult and roost together at night.  Come back tomorrow to see a roost that I found at the Loxahatchee Wildlife Refuge.
