Butterflys: Still Free at the Beach
A few morning fisher-people, ignoring the "danger" sign, and fishing anyway. I've been known to do that.
Click the pictures to enlarge.
"Snaggletooth" (Hemispristis serra). They don't come much bigger or better preserved than this one. I found a nice Black Drum's tooth, and a number of small teeth, but nothing to match this.
Trumpet Vine flowers growing among the Kudzu on the cliffs.
Milkweed plant it had just finished drinking from. I got lucky on this photo. Almost perfect view of the wings, and pretty well focused for an on the fly shot. After staring at pictures of butterflies I concluded it was likely some form of Sulphur, most likely a Clouded Sulphur.
