[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
The Gulf Fritillary (Agraulis vanillae) takes its name from the fact that migrating flights of the butterflies are sometimes seen over the Gulf of Mexico. It is not, however, closely related to the true fritillaries.

Its normal range extends from Argentina through Central America, Mexico, and the West Indies to the southern United States. Primarily a tropical butterfly, it extends its range temporarily each summer further north.
