Nice, Is that the same as a Spangle fritillary?

I would have thought so if I hadn't kept the photo of the bottom of the wings. This one has triangular spots along the back edge, otherwise, very similar.

Great image. Love that name fritillary. Just learned it a few weeks ago when shooting my own images of a spangled fritillary.

I see you like the long lens for butterfly images. I use the 400 f5.6 and Sigma 120-300. I find it much easier to get macro-like shots without the need to get really close to the subject.

Thanks, M_Six.
I usually walk with the 300mm, or 420mm (with the 1.4 tc), just in case I need the reach if something jumps out. I'll only switch to the 100mm macro if I get the time to do so, and the target is cooperative.
The 300mm also lets me get some foreground in the shot.
