Variegated Fritillary

Butterfly Identification
Good day –
I’m having a horrible time trying to identify this butterfly. It was shot in West Central Texas (Tom Green County) in the last couple of weeks and I cannot find a good identification for it. Any help will be greatly appreciated. Warm regards
jim

Hi Jim,
This looks to be a Variegated Fritillary, Euptoieta claudia. Caterpillar food plants include violets and passionvine.
