Northern Pearly-eye

At first I had thought this was an Eyed Brown but after researching I have decided that it is a Northern Pearly-eye. The Pearly-eye has a continous white line surrounding the submarginal eye spots whereas the Eyed Brown does not. I first saw this butterfly flitting about my back deck and then, luckily for me, it few into my back porch and landed on the window there. After taking its picture I picked it up and released it outdoors.
