F is for Fritillary Butterflies
|Gulf Fritillary Butterfly, Prentiss county, Mississippi, USA, July 25, 2015|
The Gulf Fritillary, Agraulis vanillae, gets its name from its migration across the Gulf of Mexico. Its range is from Argentina in South America, throughout Central America and the Caribbean Islands, and all the way north to the southern United States.

It is sometimes called the Passion Butterfly because its larva feeds exclusively on various kinds of Passionflowers.

|Canada Geese, Tupelo, Mississippi, USA, August 16, 2015|
The Canada Goose, Branta Canadensis, is common in wetlands all across Canada and the United States.
Those in the north migrate south for the Winter. Those in milder climates tend to stay there all year.
Many Canada Geese that live on lakes in city parks have become semi-domesticated.
Have a Wonderful Day!
