cedar key part 2

Many Uca pugilator (sand fiddler).  I wanted to name them all and make them my army.

Uca pugilator (male)

Avicennia germinans (black mangrove)

Borrichia frutescens (seaside oxeye)

Borrichia frutescens with what I believe to be Ascia monuste (great southern white) due to the habitat I found it in and the plants it was pollinating.  

I used the National Audubon Society Field Guide to Florida to identify the sand fiddler crab and the great southern white butterfly.  I love this guide for its glossy, color pictures that help me identify things I'm not specialized to identify.
