Glorious Garden Guests: Gulf Fritillary

Gulf Fritillaries are another of the glorious garden guests that add an extra dose of beauty to the summer season.

The designs and patterns on these butterflies are absolutely mesmerizing, right down to their speckled eyes!

These Zinnia lovers flit from flower…

…to flower…steadily slurping up nectar.

By themselves, Zinnias are lovely flowers, but when you pair their petals with a perched Fritillary, it’s a picture perfect combination!

Always a pleasure when these beauties bless me with their presence.
