Polygonia Butterfly


A Polygonia butterfly, specifically here the Question Mark Butterfly (Polygonia interrogationis), resembles both a moth and a dead leaf when it's wings are closed because of the drab brown color on the underside of the wings and "hairy" appearance. Personally I think it looks like a cameleon with those eyes! :) This friendly critter joined me on the patio one day to pose for some photos. Learn more about them at Wiki or see the great photos here
