Great Spangled Fritillary
Nice image. Neither Aphrodite or hesperis are AR residents.

Moved from ID Request.

Greater Fritillary
There are a few which are close, but I'm leaning towards either the Aphrodite Fritillary (Speyeria aphrodite) or Hesperis Fritillary (Speyeria hesperis). As I said before, you get some lovely Fritillaries in that part of the country.

Incidentally, looks like there might be a green sweat bee in the photo too.
