Zebra Longwing - State of Florida Butterfly by 


Dancing like miniature kites in the breeze today, they landed only for moments on this pink and yellow Lantana camara that is still blooming pretty well, even here in north Florida.

This Zebra longwing, the state butterfly of Florida, had it’s picture taken in my back yard, in Columbia County, just south of Lake City.

This is perhaps also one of the largest Lantan camara plants I’ve ever seen. Easily 8 feet tall and spreading over 10 feet in longest diameter. It survived the freeze last spring and returned bigger than ever. this one is yellow with mature flowers being pink. I have the usual yellow ones that mature red, they froze back and have been very slow to return, most that were in the four foot range last year, are hardly three foot high and with many fewer blooms.

Alive and well with a BFA from the University of Florida. As an artist I chose watercolors until I fell in love with the camera and the ability to create digital abstracts on the computer. These are not simply push a button creations, but often hours of work manipulating layers, twisting, turning, cropping, coloring, and merging.
