I recently went out into the field with a neat woman who does a lot of work on butterflies in this area. I got to see some local rarities, along with what is apparently not rare in these parts, Little Metalmarks (Calephelis virginiensis). I love metalmarks, which are really pretty tiny, especially the "little" ones. Click here to see some photos that do better service to the silvery markings on their wings for which they get their name.
I'm Kelly: I was born in Minnesota, but currently live in the Florida Panhandle. I'm fascinated by the beauty of God's creation, and I desire to foster awareness in others of the amazing world around us -- because once we know and appreciate the intricacy and wonder of the natural world, we will be better stewards of it.
