While you have several really beautiful photos of these butterflies mating,I didn’t see any in this position. I found these on my pumpkin vine last weekend.
Thanks so much for sending us your marvelous photo of mating Gulf Fritillaries. How is your Green Lynx Spider population this year?
I haven’t seen too many full grown green lynx spiders. Here’s a seven-legged individual I’ve seen a few times.
We wonder what caused this male Green Lynx, whose sex is evidenced by his well developed pedipalps, to lose his rear leg.
