Seedfork;
I think maybe your pictured butterflies are 'Gulf Fritillaries'...

SamBigDeer, Welcome!
I see you are a new member, thanks for taking time to comment.
Ok, now you have made me curious and I will not be satisfied till I find the name of these little fellows. I looked just now at the 'Gulf Fritillaries' and I think I get those, but they are bright orange.
