White Peacock Butterfly

White Peacock, St. Petersburg, Florida March 2020

This White Peacock (Anartia jatrophae) is one of the leftover winter forms which are larger and paler than the summer forms. I did also see some of the smaller and more vibrant summer forms flitting about nearby but sadly, I did not photograph them.

It would’ve been great to get a picture of the two forms together (ideally with a small ruler) but apparently, nature doesn’t play by my rules!
