Fritillary hiding in the (lemon) grass
A gulf fritillary [Agraulis vanillae incarnata] hides amongst blades of lemongrass [Cymbopogon sp.]. It looks like it's hyper aware; stalking prey (even though it's looking for nectar …). The bottom of this species' wings have beautiful spots that reflect silver in bright light (as you can see in this image), but are white in the shade. The forewings are also partially red.
