Butterfly sighting

Location: Town of Burlington
Racine County

Very busy butterfly on my phlox. You can see from the size it was nearly the size of the entire head of flowers. No 'tails' on it though. Brownish black above and pale yellow below with distinctive orange/russet spot at base of wings. Have seen several of them in my flower garden this year.
