Gulf Fritillary

I found this critter stiff and barely
moving on my driveway at the end of the fall. He would not fly and a hard freeze was predicted that night. He had already survived several milder freezes in the weeks preceding. I picked out a last gasp flower and posed him and the flower and tried some macros with the 24-70 lens on my Canon 5D with a studio monoblock at 4 inches or so. A series resulted of which this was one of the betters. Ill load one of its mates later on What’s new. As all things of the summer he is no longer with us.
