Yup, definitely an Arachne. The orange body bands and blue-gray eyes are identifying marks.
I'll go ahead and use your suggestion Keith. Thanks!
Thanks Y'all!! (that's texan)
really nice shot and beautiful butterfly!
Great! Very beautiful!
Thanks Ryan! and Thanks for the ID tip Keith! It looks like you're right, but I really don't know anything myself..Maybe someone can verify.
This is a bit of a shot in the dark as I am not at all familiar with this genus, but it looks a lot like Arachne Checkerspot - Poladryas arachne.http://bugguide.net/node/view/25003
