American lady (Vanessa virginiensis) butterfly
This lovely American lady has been coming to my butterfly bushes every day. Finally she stayed still long enough for me to capture with my lens.

Super shot, EG. She says your patience is rewarded. MB
I have see very few Butterflies this year.
I'm glad she stayed! Delightful.
Those butterflies do require patience, but this one was surely worth the wait.
Nice shot. My wife has left a huge weed growing in the back of our yard because it attracts birds and butterflies. I must keep my eye on it.
That's a really wonderful photo. I am pleased to make her acquaintance!
I've seen a few here too, and have been chasing them for they don't stay still very long.
I guess like minds was on our agenda today. :)
Butterflys never hold still for me, perhaps it is our warm weather.
Didn't know there was a butterfly named American Beauty. Will have to look it up. Nice capture.
Haha... I can so relate. There are clusters of small butterflies flying around our neighbourhood, but they never stop long enough for me to take a clear photo. You got yourself a beauty, EG.
I'm so glad that she sat still long enough for you to capture her and what a beauty she is!!
And a lovely lady she is!
Terrific! I have captured zero butterflies with my camera this summer. sigh
This butterfly is adorable and you did a wonderful macro shot!
Thank you for introducing me to the American Lady, didn't know there was a butterfly with that name,
I'm speechless! Cathy
Another perfect photo composition. Great share.
My Monday Marigold
Great shot from the butterfly
A flutterby... I love flutterbys!
Love the lady....
I have only seen one painted lady this summer! Take a look at my blog and see my 'sidekick.'
Lovely shot, so far the butterflies here will not sit still for even a second.
Beautiful colors in this dazzling butterfly, nice capture!
Oh, how pretty!
I planted a buddleia last autumn, and it bloomed quite well this summer, but I didn't see one single butterfly on it! Hoverflies and bees, and the odd beetle, but no butterflies. :(
Your 'American Lady' looks just like our 'Painted Lady'!
