photo quiz Phriday--5.51 hours late

Sorry it's tardy. Had it drafted, just spaced on posting it. Here she is!

Who am I?

  1. Nymphalidae: Euphydryas, probably chalcedona sierra.

  2. Of course skeptical moth is correct. =) I got to Euphydryas, thanks to a ringer-friend (after throwing in the towel once I'd looked at 10,000 butterfly baby pictures).

    I don't know, however, how variable caterpillars are within species, so wouldn't try to go further than that--I expect skepticalmoth is the one to do that. =)

    A beautiful creature in both juvenile and adult form. =)
