Gulf Frits were everywhere but favored Pride of Barbados, I wondered if it's because they're orange, and like orange flowers.
A crop duster flew over as I was out with the butterflies, en route to a field south of here.
I saw others, a Buckeye that wouldn't hold still for pictures, a dogface who would hold still but when they're on flowers, their wings are folded. I never get a good shot where you can see the 'poodle face' plainly.
Spicebush Swallowtails are our most plentiful, here on Pentas.

Here's a final Zebra, my fav, on lantana surrounded by Madagascar periwinkles.
