Ageratum conyzoides (billygoat-weed), Parantica aglea (glassy tiger)

There are a variety of butterflies that look pretty similar. Thankfully I have a book of local butterflies which makes it easier to figure out which of the similar types this is.

The butterfly is feeding on a weed introduced from the new world. The weed contaminates feed (it is poisonous) and spreads real well.
