Last week the weather was unnaturally warm for Ohio and I wondered why I had booked a flight to Florida. Although Ohio's weather nearly rivaled the balmy climes of the south, Florida has butterflies I will never see here.
The long-winged member of the fritillary butterflies is quite common in the south; it is a very, very rare occurrence in Ohio. It was one of the most common butterflies seen during my visit to Florida.
Nature is amazing, but at the same time, often horrific.
