Limenitis arthemis astyanax
Wingspan 3-3/8'' (76-86mm) These pipevine swallowtail mimics fly during spring and summer in moist, open habitats, such as meadows, forest edges, woodlands, canyons, and along rivers. There are up to 3 generations a year.
I found this Red-Spotted Purple walking down a hill.
