What butterfly is this?

Live in Baltimore, MD and saw this butterfly near our pond (see attached pic). Looks like a fritillary, but not quite like most I see in the yard. Would appreciate hearing from someone who can identify it for me. Attached pic taken this morning.

Think I've answered my own question. Picture of "varigated fritillary" at:

looks like more strikingly colored version of the pic I posted.
