Great Spangled Fritillary
Monarch butterfly activity has drastically increased over the past few days. Migration has begun. Within all that Monarch madness was this Great Spangled Fritillary. It chased a Monarch away, and ultimately got chased away itself.
It's sitting on Mexican Sunflower which is a butterfly and hummingbird magnet. My 15' long row of Mexican Sunflowers attract at least as many butterflies as my entire 1000 square foot native garden.
