This one's not in my book..

Anybody know what this is? I took the shot thinking it was a Diana Fritillary but I'm not sure. These things just won't pose for me so I can get everything just right and I'm not much of a photog anyway. Diana's are recorded in Tennessee only in the Smoky's but WhitesCreek Gorge would seem like nearly identical habitat except for the elevation. They are specific to violets and we sure have plenty of those.

I have other shots that show the wings to be the classic rounded fritillary shape, such as this one of the underwings. I'm having to shoot into the sun at long distance, so please forgive the quality.
