Fiery Skipper (Hylephila phyleus_) on Spanish Needles (_Bidens alba). Also called Tickweed by some, Spanish Needles are found all over Central Florida. In addition to attracting many kinds of butterflies, they are also an excellent source of pollen for honey bees. If you look through my portfolio for very long, you’ll see these small white flowers frequently, as I have learned to watch them for the butterflies I enjoy photographing.
Location: Sanford, Florida
