Butterfly on Lantana

There have been two regular Butterflies visiting my blooming Lantana for several weeks.

I’m not sure what type of Butterfly they are, but I think they’re in the Fritillary family. Any help with

the ID would be greatly appreciated.

Here’s one enjoying a nice drink of Lantana juice.

    1. Thank you Robert! I’m not sure putting a black cloth behind this plant would do much to help hide branches. It’s a pretty full plant with a whole lot of green everywhere. It’s great thought. I won’t have time today to try, but will keep it in my thoughts.

A penny for your thoughts...
