Great Spangled Fritillary butterfly

Great Spangled Fritillary butterflies (Speyeria cybele) spotted during two photowalks through Huntley Meadows Park, Fairfax County, Virginia USA. These individuals are feeding on Purple Milkweed flowers (Asclepias purpurascens). See also “Purple Milkweed,” formerly posted on my Posterous photoblog.
