Two of the prettiest sights to see here in Florida are the blooming Lantanas (L. camara) and the plentiful Gulf Fritillary butterflies (Agraulis vanillae). Lantana is a favorite nectar source for this butterfly species, according to Butterflies and Moths of North America. The Gulf Fritillary has a unique fast-moving wing action, not really captured in this Auto Awesome video, but you get the idea of the beauty of the plant and the butterfly together. Photos taken with my iPhone and uploaded to Google Photos, which automatically created the video.
