This Fritillary was found in a pine-oak barrens in Douglas County on September 3, 2013. It, and many others of the same species, were nectering on Liatris aspera (rough blazing star). For more information on the location and habitat go to http://fotbs.org/

Sadly, we don’t have the necessary skills to identify this lovely Greater Fritillary to the species level. We spent several weeks in Eastern Ohio/Western Pennsylvania in August and we were very disappointed that we did not see any Fritillaries.
