Watercolor study of Atala butterflies (Eumaeus atala) on a Coontie Palm (Zamia integrifolia), their host plant native to Florida. Atalas are a minute hairstreak butterfly species, once thought to be extirpated from Florida, but their population has made a comeback in recent decades thanks to conservation efforts and use of the coontie plant in landscaping around southern Florida.
