Wednesday must have been 'Butterfly and Moth Day' at my house!

Limenitis arthemis astyanax, Red-spotted Purple Admiral Butterfly is named for the red spots on the undersides of its wings. I don't know why, but it spent several minutes exploring our dog's bed on the front porch.

In this photo you can see the red spots on the undersides of the wings.
