Gulf Fritillary

Gulf Fritillaries were zipping all around the swamp edges yesterday morning in what I have come to recognize as a harbinger of fall in South Carolina.

There were a lot of spider webs, too, attached to every kind of plant around the swamp. I walked with a small stick to move those that blocked the trail and only walked into a couple.

Butterflies seem aware of the spider web strands and easily manipulate around them.

I saw this last Gulf Fritillary as we were leaving bouncing on a more delicate wild flower.
