Wonderful spotting!
Since you know the identity of your organism, would you please add the scientific name to your spotting so it can be complete!

Hello! Beautiful spot, though could you remove it from my mission, Moths of the Americas, as it is a butterfly? Thanks! An easy way to distinguish moths from butterflies is by the antennae. Butterflies have antennae which look like golf clubs, while moths have feathery antennae.

Would make a lovely addition to the Monarch Migration mission
