Julia Butterfly

Julia Butterfly
The Julia butterfly, or Julia heliconian is a brushfoot butterfly that is found from Brazil to the southern parts of Texas and Florida. Like many tropical butterflies it is bright in color and feeds of the nectar of various flowers. I photographed this butterfly down in south Florida. The larval host plant of the Julia are various passion vines.
