The following photo shows a Great Spangled Fritillary butterfly (Speyeria cybele) spotted on 17 June 2015 at Huntley Meadows Park. This individual is nectaring on an unknown species of milkweed, possibly Swamp Milkweed (Asclepias incarnata).
The milkweed was covered with tens of fritillaries, so it was almost impossible to get a clear shot of a single butterfly.
