Took this shot of a gulf fritillary while on a hike with Ivan, our rescue dog. Here is the notation: all prior shots of this species in 2020 were taken in our backyard where the wings were tattered–this newest one, about a mile from the house, doesn’t have any wing tears. And kudos to Ivan who remained still during the shoot. I don’t tell him to sit because he lacks a right hip socket–his leg is held in place by muscle. When Ivan sees me put the camera to my face, he goes calm and may even lay down on his stomach.
