This butterfly was quite active and didn't let me get a good shot with the wings open (I have a so-so top shot that helped with the ID). I got this good shot of the underside of the wings and BugGuide didn't yet have one.

Found in an undeveloped area of my subdivision that gets very weedy in the summer.
