New visitor to the DragonFly garden


This afternoon I photographed a new butterfly in the garden. According to my book it is the Pearl Crescent butterfly.

This butterfly is rather small with a wind span around 3 to 4 cm. It uses all Aster species as host plants.

The Pearl Crescent can be found through out Florida, mostly by roadsides in weed fields.
