|[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note|
|The Zebra Longwing prefers the warm weather of the southern United States and Mexico. The long wings are black with yellow stripes. This is one of the few butterflies that can eat pollen which allows it to live longer then most butterflies. At night, large numbers of Zebras will sleep together. When a male Zebra is ready to mate it will find a female chrysalis and open it just enough to mate. The average wingspan of a Zebra Longwing is 3¼”.|
Host plants: Passionflower
Nectar plants: Lantana, Hibiscus, Pentas
