W as in....

Wood-Nymph.

There are 4 different butterflies in the Wood-Nymph category. This one is a Common Wood-Nymph. They are usually found on the edge of woodland areas and in fields in the eastern part of the country. The range map shows them throughout most of the U.S. and into Canada. They do not seem to be in the southern parts of Texas, New Mexico, Arizona, Nevada and California.
