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.

Taken with a Nikon D700 and AF-S Nikkor 300mm f/4 lens



  1. Awesome click…

  2. I’m thinking Gulf Fritillary. Great shot!

  3. Love the photo. Can you rig up a black cloth background and see what it looks like?

    • 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.

  4. Beautiful Deborah; Very vibrant with great color

  5. We have had almost no butterflies this year. Thanks for sharing yours

    • Thanks Dan! I’m hoping to get more next year by planting more flowers they like. We’ll see. 🙂

A penny for your thoughts...
