Gulf Fritillary on Lantana
Photographer: Richard Rigterink
Location: Fort DeSoto County Park, Florida
Story: 
While watching for hummingbirds to come to the lantana flowers, this Gulf Fritillary fluttered over our heads briefly stopping on these brightly colored flowers. Not wanting to change my lens, I used my 500 mm to capture this orange on orange scene.

Cropping and minimal sharpening and color correction.
