Hourglass Road near Route 8 crossing
Kent County, DE
A late afternoon mob of Variegated Fritillaries (Euptoieta claudia) nectaring on MIlkweed (Asclepias syriaca). 18:45 EDT. I saw even more individuals at the same site about an hour earlier. Although some flew off, the fritillaries generally allowed a close approach. Several Pearl Crescents were also in the immediate neighborhood.
