Is there a Painted Lady hanging out in your flowers? The Painted Lady and the American Lady are often confused so I hope that these are photos of the Painted Lady😄!! The major observable difference is that the American Lady has a white spot on the wing and the Painted Lady does not. The Painted lady has 4 smaller eyespots and the American Lady has two large ones.
