He just loves the Joe Pye. He seems to hang out there all day. Third day this week, I think. Not that I'm tired of seeing him!

Beautiful, but that's an American Lady. Painted Ladies have more eyespots and no white spot on the wing.

Thank you for setting me straight. I do have a lot to learn, don't I?

Anaphilis will work as a host plant in either case, won't it?

Well, I was just looking at pictures of Painted Ladies and American Ladies, and had a hard time telling the difference, so it's not just you. :)

I always do double and triple takes with these two as well.
An easy way to remember is:
Painted Ladies have more eyes to paint.

I wouldn't know xx Lady if they bit me on the nose, but I am enchanted with how those wings look like stained glass.

What a beautiful butterfly and beautiful photo!
