Butterflies 2 Gallery

Gulf Fritillary (Agraulis vanillae) Top View (I.D. courtesy of Danny Burk)

This shot was actually taken just down the street from the condo where we were staying, where some bushes attracted a fair number of butterflies. This specimen had a slight scratch across its right wing which I repaired in Photoshop.
