This American Lady is enjoying time on our butterfly bush.

Special thanks to my friend Ivan who helped me ID this one.

Thanks for taking time to view.

Hello Paul,
This is a nice capture of an American Painted lady, Vanessa virginiensis taken from a POV that focuses on the underside of the hindwing with good sharpness and the rest sufficiently clear for me to ID it as not an Gulf fritillary..
Thanks for sharing this image of a species not often shown on TN.
