Zebra Longwing Butterfly on ground orchid

This butterfly was “held hostage” so to speak inside my screen room while the door was left ajar and was trying to get his food supplement from the flowers and orchids from my patio. I was able to get him happily out in the wild.

Yellow-rumped Warbler_93E9771

Although variable, all yellow-rumped warblers possess a bright yellow rump, which is shared with only 2 other species.
These birds are one of North America’s most abundant neotropical migrants. They are primarily insectivorous. The species is perhaps the most versatile foragers of all warblers. Beyond gleaning from leaves like other New World warblers, they often flit, flycatcher-like, out from their perches in short loops, to catch flying insects.
