Duranta Sky Flower Bush - 19 butterfly photos
Found a guava skipper nectaring on my duranta purple sky flower bushes (aka duranta erecta, duranta repens, golden dewdrops). I highly recommend this bush - it has an abundance of butterfly traffic.
The majority of these photos were taken this past week.
Funereal or Mourning Skipper?
Gulf Fritillary and Queen
Turquoise Long-tailed Skipper
Lots and lots of other kinds of skippers (many too fast and too small for me to focus and photograph)
Sphinx moth - aellopos clavipes?
