When I was out in the front yard with Tucker this morning (who is now 7 months old) I saw a lovely Gulf Fritillary loitering around the Lantana. This is a butterfly that practically begs to have its picture taken, so I was happy to grab my camera and oblige.
Between the brightness of the sun, the brightness of the blossoms, and the brightness of the butterfly itself…well, let’s just say there was a lot of brightness going on!
I know that summer will soon be saying farewell, but I’ll enjoy these butterfly visits for as long as they last.
And by the way…Tucker had his first trip to the dog park today…pretty sure this is his version of “King of the Mountain.”
I enjoy him even more than the butterflies. 🙂

Wonderful photos, particularly the last one😊
That last one is definitely a cutie!
The Fritillaries have such fascinating markings.
Beautiful photos of this colorful butterfly, which unfortunately only lives in the South. By the way, Tucker is very handsome.
Thank you, to both comments. 🙂
Stunning photos!! Such a lovely butterfly! And a handsome dog! ❤️🦋👍
I have taken to calling him my beautiful beast. 🙂
Another special beauty!
