Gulf Fritillary on Tithonia

It's not just the bumblebees that like my tithonias. The Gulf Fritillaries are loving them too. Here's a picture I got this morning of one basking on the Mexican Sunflowers. Isn't this amazing? Me and my daughter, Rhonda, love the butterflies. Right now we are chronicling the life cycle of a Gulf Frit as it goes from caterpillar to adult. I will show the pictures sometime when it finishes its transformation to an adult butterfly. Stay tuned...
