great spangled fritillary

i think forcing the mister to NOT mow the lawn for several weeks earlier in the season has helped produce some amazing butterflies i have never seen before... or maybe i didnt notice them: no, that is not possible! this is a lovely great spangled fritillary on my pink buddleia. i love the fact that my field guide says they feed mostly on violets.
