Wow. Thank you for those stunning photos, Kathy!  
We are excited here at our place today in Sonoma County CA because we've just spotted our first Gulf Fritillary. They fly so fast I am in awe that you got the photos you did.  
We've lived here for over a decade and had never seen one. We have a number of habitat plants for butterflies. We did, however, enjoy our first population boom of pipevine swallowtails earlier this summer--it took them years to notice all the aristolochia we planted.  
Thanks again for the great photos; they helped me to ID the frit.

Thanks much! We planted a lot of Mexican sunflower (Tithonia) and the Gulf Frits are all over them!
