American Lady butterfly

I watched this little beauty moving around from plant to plant while hiking along the Ocean Path near Otter Point. At first, I thought it was a Painted Lady butterfly. But, doing some research, I realized that the little white spot in the orange section on the larger wings indicates this is an American Lady. Learned something today!!
