Great Spangled Fritillary is Ready for her Closeup


At the end of the season, she's a tad faded but still beautiful.



She posed most obligingly, side and front. 


Wings lowered, wings raised . . .


And then she was gone.

Such a match between this fritillary and the marigold especially under this beautiful light. They both even seem to be having a little chat on Number 2.

She looks like she was warming herself in the sun just for you. It is a photo that really glows with color.
