The Southern Dogface Sulpher is easy to ID.. The black spot on its wing as well as the pink color. Its such a unquie butterfly in the sulpher family.
They can be seen all year around… and oh my goodness, I didn’t see that grasshopper to the right of the butterfly.
Sometimes, actually more times then I would want to admit, when you are so focused photographing one subject you tend to forget to look around. It is super cool to find these suprises!
This lily popped up days before I saw it.. just this single little white flower with hints of pink on the petals was all alone across from the Big Pine Tract.
Even though these lillies commonly bloom during spring and summer, there are rare occassions they bloom in December.
