Aphrodite Fritillary

butterflies everywhere in Spearfish Canyon

This butterfly seemed to be attracted to the red shoes laces of my New Balance Minimus shoes.  I was hiking the Little Spearfish Trail in an area known as Ranger Draw and there were wild flowers and butterflies all over the place.   Once I got back home I looked through the Beginner’s Guide to Butterflies and try to identify butterfly that  I encountered – I am quite certain it is an Aphrodite Fritillary.

It seems like every time I go hiking in Spearfish Canyon the experience is different.  I just never know what I will find on the trail.

Visit my Spearfish Canyon page to learn more about enjoying the canyon.  There are unique things around every turn, just waiting for you to explore.
