Variegated Fritillary ( Euptoieta claudia ) -
1st of this year -2021-
Usually land on a flower and stay put -
Enjoying a feast -
Not this one -
This flutterby went from flower to flower -
Sometimes landing -
At times - not -
Still did my usual 'butterfly hunt mode' -
Don't follow them -
All of them are faster than us -
Observe the flowers they land on -
Plant yourself nearby -
They return -
At times you can get bunches of shots from one butterfly & a flower -
Without moving the camera much -
My camera has the option of totally turning off any sounds -
Though I know of cameras where it can only be turned down -
Have always thought the designer of 'not turning off sound' -
Didn't know the first thing about butterflies, wading birds, etc. -
Shall we hold classes for them ?

Wonderful photos. I don't think I've ever seen one of these. Mostly we have gulf fritillaries at this time of year.

All are very beautiful photos of a beautiful butterfly and lovely flowers. If I had to choose one, I'd choose the 2nd PiP which shows more of the neighboring flowers and buds with the beautiful dark green that somehow makes the orange of the butterfly and flower stand out.
