Week 44! Can you believe there are only 8.5 weeks of 2014 left! The year has flown by.

This Gulf Fritillary was fearless! It came to my Lantana while #1 Grandson was out in the yard playing. I had my camera nearby so grabbed it and captured quite a few images of it. I made this image yesterday afternoon.

Gulf Fritillary

I wish more critters, and insects were as brave as this one.

More to come…



  1. Wow! You get Gulf Fritillaries?! I definitely need to return to the coast! This is a great shot.

    • Thank you Melissa! Yes, I had a few flitting around my Lantana this season. I wish I’d Monarchs…maybe one day. 🙂

      • No Monarchs? That is sad. Hey! If you are ever in the Chicago area look me up. I’ll take you to Illinois Beach State Park, where there are lots of birds and butterflies for you to photograph. We are on a major Monarch flyway.

        • Not at my house, but we do get them over the hill in Santa Cruz. They winter there. I was over there recently and took several photographs of a male and female Monarch. I plan on posting an image or two eventually. I’m slow. I’ve whale images from 2 years ago I’ve not touched. I’m just letting them marinate.

          I will definitely give you a heads up if I find myself traveling to your area. Thank you for that offer!

  2. a beautiful shot!!

  3. We have had so few butterflies this year that it’s sad. It is good to see pictures like this to remind us of their beauty. Thansk for sharing this.
