Macro Monday - Butterfly on a Coneflower

This is some variety of Fritillary but just which one I do not remember.   I should know because I had a big entomology project then I was in high school.  Living in a small town I had country friends who belonged to the 4-H club and raised show calves, lambs, chickens or rabbits and entered them in the county fair.  I didn't have space enough in town to manage livestock, but the 4-H club offered other things as well, one of which was an Entomology project. I had a lot of fun with it and made some good friends.

I like the Purple Cone Flower doing its job. Mine are not blooming yet. We are getting tears from God again. He cries a lot since BP spilled their oil in Gulf.

Great photograph. I like the transition of colors from the flower to the butterfly.

Love that you captured the butterfly with its wings spread...it makes such a colorful photo being perched on top of the cone flower.
