Backyard Friends

This is an annual visitor to my backyard and everyone else's on the Gulf Coast for that matter. It's the "gulf fritillary" which is more commonly known as the "Gulf Butterfly." I was beginning to wonder if they were going to show up for a while, wondering if the previous year's storms hadn't messed up their mating cycles. But, they finally showed up and they love to hang around the lantana as you can see in this picture.
