A Variegated Fritillary irruption?

On the heals of Ron Wilson’s Variegated Fritillary in Nova Scotia, I found one today (August 5) on Grand Lake, near Minto, NB! Could these records be the beginning of an irruption? Only one way to find out – get out and go butterflying! Variegated Fritillaries could show up just about anywhere, but flower gardens, meadows, and shorelines are likely locations.
