So after that butterfly yesterday, we figured we best show you one of the real thing.
The Great Spangled Fritillary is a fairly common visitor in our Virginia neighborhoods.
Because one of our readers asked, we realize we forgot to tell you how you can also have butterflies! *tails drooping* Grow the plants the caterpillars like to eat! These are Zinnias, but Fritillaries are also attracted to Common Milkweed, if you’d prefer to host a native plant.
