Aphrodite Fritillary

While I was taking pictures of the mullein yesterday, I got another nice surprise. I know enough about butterflies to tell this was a Fritillary, but I had to look up which kind. It's an Aphrodite! Speyeria aphrodite

Here are the wings opened.

The underwings are really pretty.

That milkweed was providing lunch for more than just the fritillary. More tomorrow!
