Macro Monday - Gulf Fritillary


The Gulf Fritillary is distinguished by the vivid silver markings on the under wings.  From above it looks similar to the Variegated  Fritillary posted earlier.

Great photos!
We sometimes see the Great Spangled Fritillary here in Mississippi.
Have a wonderful week!

Nice captures of a very pretty little butterfly.

Beautiful! We've already had our first snow, so no more butterflies for us for a while, making these photos a real treat.

Nice shots, I am jealous of people who know their butterflies by name!
