Looking At Insects. #29 Butterfly.

Happy Saturday everyone!

Well, after a bit of a break, here we are with another insect to share. This is the “Atlantis Fritillary” butterfly. They have a wingspan of 2 inches or more (5cm or more). They fly between mid June to late August in our area. They are a more northern butterfly and have one brood each summer, then overwinter as a caterpillar. The favorite food of the caterpillars are violets, the adult butterfly visits many different flowers. Eggs are laid near violets. Have a wonderful day and God bless!
