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.

That first shot is amazing. Love the colors and the clarity.
