I think I've seen my first Gulf Frit ??
While collecting pipevine leaves, I noticed a fluttering out of the corner of my eye. ALERT to brain ... Bright Orange ... oh my, ran into the house to grab my camera and I got three shots before it spiraled up into the sky with another bright orange butterfly. Waited a while but they didn't return. I SO HOPE this is a Gulf Frit. It had big white spots on the underside of the wings but none of my shots caught it with it's wings up.
Even if it's not a Gulf Frit, it's a new butterfly to my garden. First the little sweetie pie munching on the Pentas and now this new butterfly. Can my day get any better! :-)
