Seems that I misidentified one of the butterflies in my May 2 post, Pollinator Frenzy.
The above butterfly is a Buckeye. It doesn't have some of the colors of the Common Buckeye, but it certainly is not a Painted Lady. This is what a Painted Lady looks like. My brain got some crossed wires when I checked my little "Checklist of Kansas Butterflies" booklet. Sorry for the error. I will change the name in that post.

It's not always easy to identify them...when I saw it, I thought it was a moth. The monarch has a twin that if similar, so often times it gets identified incorrectly.
