Sharing my vision with the World

Gulf Fritillary

“The little caterpillar creeps

Awhile before in silk it sleeps.

It sleeps awhile before it flies,

And flies awhile before it dies,

And that’s the end of three good tries.”

~David McCord

“The Gulf Fritillary is named after the colorful, orange-red fritillary flower.”

“The reference to the Gulf is due to the fact that this species is common in the states around the Gulf of Mexico.”

“The Gulf Fritillary is a Native of Florida.  They fly year round in southern Florida and recolonizes in northern Florida after cold winters.”

I hope you enjoy these pictures as much as I enjoyed taking them.  Thanks so much for taking the time to stop by.
