Anartia jatrophae, 19 August 2006

Anartia jatrophae, the White peacock;
Lake county, Florida (19 August 2006).

The White peacock can be ridiculously abundant in central Florida. This is one of my most-commonly observed butterflies in my home territory of Volusia and Lake counties. Outside of Florida, they range throughout portions of the American southeast, down through Central America, and even to the northern half (or so) of South America. They may be modest by global butterfly standards, but I find White peacocks to be extremely lovely.
