A Question Mark

July 16, 2015  •  10 Comments

This Question Mark butterfly (Polygonia interrogationis) had been flying around the property for a few days, but it wouldn't let me get close enough to photograph it. Then I snuck up on it sunning itself on a grape leaf in the late afternoon sunshine. The silver lining on the edge of the wings with the dots look somewhat like question marks (I think it's more pronounced of other variations), thus it's common name the Question Mark.
