I managed to capture this beautiful Meadow Fritillary this afternoon on our bike ride along the Delaware & Lehigh Bike Trail, between White Haven and Glen Summit Pennsylvania. The Meadow Fritillary is a common butterfly active during the day. It does well in disturbed habitats, and is expanding its range from Canada and the north east United States, further south. They belong to the Nymphalidae family of butterflies, which are characterized by having small front legs with brush like appendages on them.
We also saw a lot of Swallowtail butterflies today but I couldn’t get any photos of them.
