Arrgh! Now I have to find me another take on "Z" - already 2 Zebra Longwings. Ts, Ts. But it IS a good choice! ;)

Very pretty! Never seen one in the wild before.

Katney said...

Goodness, another Zebra Swallowtail. That is a great coincidence--or not since it is Z today. But since you took it a few years ago, have you seen many recently? I wonder, as Nina says they are becoming rare because of loss of habitat in her area.

kateny:
The Zebra Swallowtail is a different species from the Zebra butterfly that I have posted. The Zebra butterfly I have shown belongs to the Heliconian group and is usually only found in Florida and Texas. My photo was taken in Florida.

This is a new butterfly to me! So sweet! Butterflies are constantly on my way, I believe it's a good sign! :) Great choice to finish this ABC round!
