Variegated fritillary

I was actually trying unsuccessfully to take a picture of another butterfly this evening when I saw this variegated fritillary lighting on the oregano. 
Of the butterflies I photographed last year, this was not one I had, so I was delighted to get such an easy shot of it today.
(I wonder if the flavor of the nectar is anything like the flavor of the leaves.)
