American Painted Lady Butterfly on Black-Eyed Susan Wildflower

Found out the orange and black butterflies we have all around the farm are American Painted Ladies.  Here is one on the black-eyed susan that is growing in the open field next to the cowpeas.  There are many wildflowers in this field, so we are mowing it less often so the pollinators have plenty to eat.
