The very first Queen butterfly I had seen in my garden this season!
A somewhat bedraggled male Monarch.
Tropical Checkered Skipper.
All of these butterflies, except for the American Snout, were seen nectaring on the purple trailing lantana, which, although nipped by frost, still has many tiny blooms. It was alive with these butterflies and many, many more today - Nature's precious winter gifts to this grateful gardener.
