They've been showing up, a few at a time. There are enough now to say that I saw dozens today: half a dozen Pipevine Swallowtails in one place on gold Lantana.
Saturday they were swarming daylilies:
I am always amused to see Pipevine Swallowtails 'dive' into daylilies.
Today I told myself that I need not stand outside in 91º heat and sun to take pictures of the same kinds of insects I snapped every previous year and posted here. To amuse myself, I went back to May of every year's archives and sure enough, they are there.
Here's a link to a good sample of what we see in May: Butterflies of May.
Today I saw Pipevine Swallowtails, a Tiger, many tiny duskywing skippers, a Fritillary and Buckeyes. Last week I saw a Cabbage White, Red Spotted Purple, the inevitable Sulfurs and some Gulf Fritillaries.
Now that I found my tripod and all its parts, I might try again for videos on a cooler day where only the butterflies flit about and the hands of the blogger might be still.
