As I was out wandering, earlier this week, I found this butterfly that actually stayed still long enough for me to get my camera out and set up. I have never had much luck with butterflies as they, like birds, just don't stay still long enough for me to get a good look.
Can anyone help me with identifying this species? If not, perhaps it is enough to just enjoy.
....Thanks to Rexroth's Daughter's comment, I now have an ID for the butterfly. Unless anyone complains, i.e. has a different opinion, this butterfly shall be called Silvery Checkerspot (Chlosyne nycteis). The butterfly is listed for our area, was found by an open area, and was close to the adult food plants listed in the guide to which Rexroth's Daugher sent me. (I never would have identified it with my old Peterson Guide black and white photo.)
