Gulf Fritillary Butterfly by 

I captured this beautiful Gulf Fritillary Butterfly (agraulis vanillae) enjoying a sunny afternoon among the flowers at Sholom Park in Ocala, Florida in early October. This is also known as a Passion Butterfly. You can see him sipping nectar.

Having lived most of my life in the northeast U.S., I am enjoying retired life in sunny Florida. I enjoy photographing many different kinds of things, but especially flowers and animals, including the beautiful birds found here in Florida. I am currently using a Canon EOS Rebel XSi/450D camera, a Canon 55-250 mm telescopic zoom lens, and a Sony P10 Cyber-shot digital camera. My newest acquisition is a Canon PowerShot SX260 HS, a point and shoot which I will be carrying in my purse.

    Beautiful Dot. I love these beauties. There were three of them on my flowers yesterday at the same time.

  • They move so fast, it’s hard to capture them! I did get a few shots as I stood there for a long time!
