American Lady
Moved from ID Request.

You have just extended North Carolina's season to October.

Nice Photos
All these new photos are exceptionally nice. Thank you for posting them. Can't wait to see more.

Thank you!

I believe you are right
The Anerican Lady has two large eye spots on the underside of its hind wings.
