Orange on orange

orange butterFriends, this is one of the many fritillary butterflies in Crex.  I think this is Atlantis but can’t be sure.  To me they all look alike and i have difficulty differentiating them, but don’t need a name to appreciate their beauty.  This one is perched  on butterfly weed, an orange milkweed. til Tomorrow MJ
