Why are you reporting this puzzle?

One of four butterflies from a recent visit to the Butterfly Rainforest exhibit at the Florida Museum of Natural History in Gainesville. I didn't try to learn the names - there were many varieties present. It is also the home of the McGuire Center for Lepidoptera and Biodiversity. From their website: "... the largest collections-based research and education center in the world focused on butterflies and moths. The collections are taxonomically comprehensive and contain more than 10 million specimens, which are widely used by an ever-growing global community of students and scientists. The Center documents past and present patterns of biological diversity and forms the basis for research ranging from climate change and emerging agricultural pests, to evolution and biodiversity conservation." Parts of the laboratory, including a series of pupae to emerging butterflies, are visible through glass from the museum. A video tour can be found at their website: https://www.floridamuseum.ufl.edu/mcguire/

THANKS, @PaxLab!

@4felines I have Seek on my android and had found it in the Play Store.

@PaxLab and @Ginn2. I checked, and there have been no verified sightings of Julia here (Mississippi). Too bad for me. It's a gorgeous butterfly.

BTW, I also checked your Jigidi page. I LIKE it, and I decided to follow you too!

@Ginn2, INaturalist's free Seek app is for iPhone. I have an Android. Do you know the equivalent? ~Martha

I will have to try Seek. I can't remember what app I have now, but I am not loving it. Thanks for identifying them. And it is a great tip to take photos of the signs as a reminder later.

Beautiful! Sorry I didn't see you had posted butterfly puzzles earlier. I think I told you about putting INaturalist's free Seek app on my new phone a few months ago. I did it so I could identify flowers when I get photos of bees or, rarely, butterflies on them. At least flowers sit still and let me wave the phone over them. Turns out Seek can also identify things from photos! Not always, as a photo is 2D and sometimes it wants you to move the phone around for different angles, but usually. Seek says this butterfly is a Julia Heliconian. I googled photos of the Julia butterfly and Seek is right. "Dryas iulia, commonly called the Julia butterfly, Julia heliconian, the flame, or flambeau, is a species of brush-footed butterfly."

When I go to the bird aviaries at the zoo, I photograph the signs. Then I don't have to try to identify the birds I'm photographing at the time, but I can usually find the bird's name from the sign when I'm sorting photos at home later.
