The Tropical Silverspot Gulf Fritillary

The Tropical Silverspot Gulf Fritillary is one of the many species of butterflies living in Jamaica.  Today, finally! one of them paused long enough for me to get a snap shot of it.

This is it feeding on a Spanish needle flower.  The sun is beaming down on it wings transforming it into a paler colour.  What we see is its underbelly.

This is it true colour.

I see many other species of Jamaican butterflies in my yard, I will patiently wait and take more photos of them in the days ahead.
