“American Lady” by rhoing

“American Lady”

Yesterday was a “Painted Lady”; this is an “American Lady” (from the same genus). Even though it is seen in all-but-five continental states, only 21 posts on 365 have been tagged for this butterfly. I did not see this one last year, so I have to post this, as I may not see another this year.

Confirmed at BAMONA as “Vanessa virginiensis” or “American Lady.”

Interesting to have the (now) obvious differences pointed out. I knew there were some but not what. j

@jesika2 These two are certainly similar enough that one can understand why they're in the same genus. :)
