that's OK james...all good! That's what project noah is about, helping others out and learning from others as well. We have quite a number of these butterflies around here. I've already learned quite a bit from your spottings as well ;)

I agree venusflytrap2000. My bad. Thank you for the correction!

gonna have to disagree w/you on this one, James. The wing markings suggest a Great Spangled Fritillary rather than a Variegated.

Look under Fritillaries in a Butterfly book and find the one in your location. Beautiful pictures!
