My yard. It was starting to cool down today in Florida with temps getting into the 60s, but by 2pm butterflies started to fly and I was pleased to see 3 red admirals in my own yard and a few more while walking around the neighborhood. One of my favorite observations was this Polydamas Swallowtail which showed near-perfect hearts a good portion of the gold rim. Temps are expected to drop into the 30s and 40s the next couple nights.
