Sleepy Orange Butterfly (Eurema nicippe)

CENTRAL FLORIDA CRITTER OF THE DAY: Sleepy Orange Butterfly (Eurema nicippe)

New addition to my buggy life-list. This species wasn’t represented for Osceola FL at Butterfliesandmoths.org so I submitted it and it will now appear on the county checklist. You can become a citizen scientist too. Find out information at their website.
