Florida Butterflies

Today we went to Hillsborough River State Park to sharpen up on our plant skills. It was great to hear neo-tropical migrants singing, see flowers blooming, and butterflies flying around. These two were very eye-catching. Any help on ID would be appreciated.
Zebra longwing (Heliconius charithonia) (thanks Kelly)

Gulf Fritillary (Agraulis vanillae) (thanks Kelly)

Zebra Swallowtail (Eurytides marcellus) was the most common butterfly in the dry prairie at Myakka River State Park.
