Gulf Frits showed up

I saw the first Gulf Frit in my yard a couple days ago and this morning there were three. They're nectaring on my zinnias and lantana. I planted lantana 'Citrus' this year and it's been drawing butterflies really well.

This photo of a Gulf Frit on zinnia Zowie Yellow Flame turned out bright.

Congratulations! I love that zinnia! They have been really 'busy' here and I have more gulf frit eggs than I know what to do with! Thankfully I have even more passion vine than that! The Gulf Frits seem to prefer the P. caerulea for laying, but they are eating the P. incarnata just fine.

Both that zinnia and that butterfly are gorgeous!

Beautiful! That would win a contest. Thanks for sharing.
Here is my Great Spangled but not as defined as your Gulf.
