Positive ID

After a lazy afternoon of swimming, reading and napping we are joined for supper by a butterfly. We saw very little wildlife during our stay: a few loons, one heron, chipmunks, seagulls, a large turtle and this butterfly. After submitting this photo to sightings@butterfliesandmoths.org I got back a positive ID: Limenitis arthemis arthemis - White Admiral (a species of North American brush-footed butterfly, common throughout much of the eastern North America).
