Great Spangled Fritillary butterfly

Great Spangled Fritillary butterfly (Speyeria cybele)

I spotted a Great Spangled Fritillary butterfly (Speyeria cybele) during a photowalk at Huntley Meadows Park on 06 June 2014. This individual is feeding on mineral salts from the gravel road on which it is perching, as shown in the following photo.
