One of our readers wrote to us this past summer and sent us this beautiful picture and said ... I took this picture of this beauty in my butterfly / bee garden on the weekend.

Can anyone tell me what kind it is?

Thank you for sending this to us.

I hope one of our readers will be able to identify it for you, but sadly, I cannot.

You could try identifying it using this website Butterflies of Ontario as there are many lovely types listed there.
