I have planted Violets in hopes of getting these guys to lay eggs but no takers yet...I see them every year and they love Zinna's I have noticed.

I always see these out in the lane down to the pastures below the house on mayweed and hawksweed. They also spend time back in the old rock quarry on the swamp milkweed.
