Observation Notes: Although we see many Gulf Fritillary butterflies (we grow the host plant), this is the first time we have seen this type of fritillary. Although I believe it is a male from the lighter spot on its wing, that appears absent in the female, this fritillary was quite large. We do have violets in one area of the yard under a tulip poplar tree.
