Tattered Gulf fritillary

Life has taken a toll on this butterfly as revealed by its tattered and torn up wings.  But regardless of the predators and various environmental challenges it has faced, it is still a beautiful butterfly that has survived to fly another day.

  1. I had to go back and look for the flaws in the butterfly. The colors caught my attention first and I didn’t notice. Your photography is amazing, Rebecca ❤️

    • Thanks, Kathy! It looks like perhaps something grabbed it by its back wings and tore part off. I have to imagine that it’s a rough world out there for a delicate little butterfly.
