How often do you see?
Yesterday I saw a dark form Tiger and then later I saw a yellow Tiger. Today I saw a Queen. These are unusual for me, especially the Queen and the Dark Form Tiger. This led me to think about what butterflies I see and how often. Below is a brief summary. I would be interested in what others see and how often. It would help if you mention where you live. I live in Central Florida, just west of Orlando.
All the time: (meaning if I am out in the garden for ten minutes or so)
Monarchs, Gold Rims, Sulphurs, Skippers, Zebra Longwings, Gulf Fritillaries
Eastern Black Swallowtails: Giant Swallowtails:
Once a week or so:
Pipevines, Spicebush, Palamedes, Tiger Swallowtails
Perhaps once a month:
White Peacocks: Red Admirals
Rarely although they are reported in my area:
Red Spotted Purples: Queens: Viceroys: Tiger Swallowtails (Black Form): Zebra Swallowtails: American Painted Ladies: Buckeye: Pearl Crescent: Question Mark:
