The Gulf Fritillary
Saw a couple of them on my walk with Jay Jay today. They have some interesting facts about them.
These are often called “One Way” butterflies. Every winter, they die all over the US except the warm parts – mostly South Florida and South Texas. However, they do not leave any eggs or larvae like many other insects that can survive the winter and be born during spring.
As a result, every spring, a fresh batch of these butterflies start their northward journey anew!
