A Great Spangled Fritillary

This is my first view, and first photographs, of this beauty. In early July, the fritillaries were on the milkweed and I was fortunate to see this from the kitchen window. It is extremely tattered (as have most of my butterflies been this summer). It is a nectar sipper. I used my new long lens for these photographs and found that capturing butterflies was much easier.

  1. Andree,
    These are stunning, each one. The light shining through and around this guy is gorgeous.
