Question Mark

By taggart  
Question Mark
Polygonia interrogationis. summer form wingspan 60-68 mm.

I believe this butterfly was newly hatched--drying off and not quite flying---so I grabbed my camera and made some handheld captures---it finally flew off
The version will show a 'text book type' portrait.

Will I ever see a dragonfly and a beetle chatting again--- I doubt it-- Thank you all for your wonderful comments as well as those votes and awards!
Happy Weekend!

Two fine captures here Jenn. Oddly we have a butterfly in Britain very similar but called a Comma. Punctuation-mark butterflies it seems 🙂🙂
