Gulf Fritillary on Lantana
Photographer: Richard Rigterink
Location: Fort DeSoto County Park, Florida
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.
