As part of my day job, I promote ecotourism opportunities on the Florida Panhandle. My favorite day at work was one entirely devoted to outdoor recreation, from paddleboarding to swimming to hiking. I started at 7:30 a.m., and continued straight on until nearly 5 p.m. Luckily I had two friends along to enjoy everything with me!
Of all the places we visited, a patch of wildflowers absolutely covered in butterflies felt the most special. Though there were large black and orange Monarchs flitting from blossom to blossom, I preferred the smaller and daintier species, featured here.
