Randy,

Thank you for the correction. I am not a butterfly expert! I was using one of the kids' books on butterflies to identify it.

I thought they were American Painted Ladies. That's what I've called them. I'll have to look them up again in the book I use. I'll let you know what I find out (if I remember, my memory is getting bad).

I enjoyed your other butterfly and hibiscus photos, too.
