Later in the day the wind shifted to the west and we got more good butterflies. This Mercurial Skipper was yard butterfly #119. They are pretty rare but are reported most years.
The same purple Duranta also gave us our second Zilpa Longtail.
And a tailless Long-tailed Skipper.
A colorful female Orange-barred Sulphur nectared in the nearby papaya.
Florida Whites and Mexican Yellows are occurring daily.
And even the Boisduval's Yellow appeared. It seems as though there has been several of them but maybe it's just the same one each day.
Our usual Double-dotted Skipper.
And then there was this skipper. It seems to lack the costal dashes of a Clouded Skipper but I see no reason to call it a Fawn-spotted so we're left with the rare stuff. As of now it remains unidentified.
