Golden Fritillary on Butterfly Weed

I think these are Golden Fritillary Butterflies, but I have very limited skills in butterfly identification.   I am certain this is Butterfly Weed,   (Asclepias tuberosa) which is in the milkweed family.  It is appropriately named.   The butterflies are all over it this time of year.
