GULF FRITILLARY IN ACTION

This lovely butterfly can be found from Argentina through Central America, Mexico, and the West Indies to the southern United States, also the San Francisco Bay area on the west coast. It is bright orange with large silvery spots on the underside of the wings.

The Gulf Frilillary lays its eggs on Passion Vines. On the previous post you were able to see the caterpillar form of this butterfly.
