Gulf Fritillaries

September Gulf Fritillaries

I’ve seen a few Gulf Fritillaries around as recently as last week. In September they were everywhere you looked. These images were taken on the Morris Island end of Folly Beach where they were cavorting around in the flowers growing in the sand.

Although they fly about independently, if one butterfly finds something good another will soon follow.

They seemed OK at sharing if there were two vying for the same spot, and can hardly push each other around the way birds might do.
