Our first morning in Naples we took a walk at the Gordon River Greenway Park.
Suddenly, there was a blast of orange flying across the trail!
Gulf Fritillary (my first!)
What a gorgeous species!
Anhinga (life bird)
Our friend Tony spotted this right next to the boardwalk.
Near the Visitor Center, I saw a white butterfly flying close to the ground. Having learned my lesson in Alaska that not all white butterflies are Cabbage Whites, I followed it until I could get a closer look at it, and voila! A White Peacock Butterfly! Another first!
