A number of Gulf Fritillary butterflies were feeding in a stand of wildflowers at the edge of a field on a sunny October day.
Some were in perfect physical condition.
Others were exhibiting signs of some challenges.

The second shot is realy awesome. Thanks for sharing this beautiful butterfly. Greets, Rudi
Thank you, Rudi, I’m so glad that you liked it. That was some kind of goldenrod in the background making that nice yellow. Wishing you a wonderful weekend 😀.
It’ always impressive to see the damage a butterfly or moth can take to its wings and still thrive.
It sure is, Steve. This one had no trouble flying.
