...a photo a day (or so) from deep in the heart of Texas.

This is one of my favorite butterflies, a Gulf Fritillary, also known as Agraulis vanillae. Unfortunately, I don't know the name of the flower it is perched on. I'm also not sure how to pronounce the name. Is it like the word artillery?
Anyway, I find it amazing that a living thing can look so metallic - with silver and copper patches on its wings.
