Coordinator notes: thanks for submitting this lovely photo. the greater fritillaries (genus Speyeria) are a complicated group. Nokomis does fly in that area, but later in summer. This is Speyeria hesperis nausicaa, the southwestern version of a very widespread western US fritillary. thanks for subitting!
