Painted lady

IMG_5157

This butterfly has the wonderful scientific name Vanessa annabella (West Coast painted lady). They have markings similar to the monarchs. I encountered this one near the bike trail across the river from Folsom. I tried to get a better angle on the wings, but my subject had no patience for paparazzi and flew away.
