FFTD Bonus 3-7 Gulf Fritillary on a thistle

           This butterfly, a Gulf Fritillary, was on a thistle in The 
           Bailey Tract. Also called Passion Butterfly  (Agraulis vanillae), 
           it derives its name from butterflies migrating over the Gulf 
           of Mexico.  It is not closely related to the true fritillaries.
