I’m not even going to try to give the names of these butterflies. I do know that the one above with the lime green spots is a malachite. They are rare in central Florida and mostly seen in the Keys and Caribbean. All of the above were taken in the butterfly house at MOSI (Museum of Science and Industry) in north Tampa. I was tired of walking around Lettuce Lake Park but it was too nice to go home so I stopped there for an hour. There wasn’t a lot of butterflies outside in the gardens but the butterfly house still had plenty flying around.
