Dione vanillae, 10 October 2006

Dione vanillae, the Gulf fritillary;
Volusia county, Florida (10 October 2006).

The Gulf fritillary is one of the most commonly spotted butterflies throughout central Florida. In fact, they’re quite common across the United States, all the way west to California, and then down through Central and much of South America. They have a considerably impressive range, and locally they can be very, very abundant (and easy to spot with their bright orange coloring).
