Nope! This is actually known as a red spotted purple, a very odd name for such a lovely creature!
Thanks for viewing and commenting!

Gorgeous image. Great DOF and lovely detail.
This is stunning, Wow what beauty and color is outstanding.
Beautiful butterfly and capture!
Nice shot. I've seen this kind before but was never sure I'd ID'd it correctly because, as you point out, the name doesn't seem to match the appearance.
Lovely! Recognized this beauty right awy:-)
Outstanding capture; great detail!
