My butterfly

Karen Purtee
This butterfly visited my garden pausing for a portrait on my rhododendron on July 10th. I looked for the lovely design on line but couldn't match the species. It measured almost 4" across the top from orange edge to orange edge. Maybe a reader will be able to identify it. It rested for about ten minutes and then left - haven't seen it since.
