Flutterby and Flower #5

Great Spangled Fritillary.  I LOVE the colors and pattern of these wings –  they’re subtle and eye catching at the same time!   Their host plant is violets.  It pleased me to paint that pretty purple with the copper/golden wings – such a dainty combination ; )

I have violets growing in every corner of my gardens – I just let them ramble like weeds in between everything else…but, I haven’t noticed any fritillaries in my yard yet!  I’ll be keeping a close eye out for them next summer ; )

Now, what next?  Do you have a butterfly you’d like to see?
