“The prettier side of ‘?’” by rhoing

“The prettier side of ‘?’”

The butterfly species is called “Question Mark”; yes, that's the name of the species. (“I swear I am not making this up.”) But check out the scientific name: “Polygonia interrogationis.” I photographed this at the lake after rowing. It's interesting how the species I regularly see at the lake are different than the species I regularly see at home. The difference, of course, is the plants!

Confirmed at BAMONA as “Polygonia interrogationis” or “Question Mark”; http://www.butterfliesandmoths.org/sighting_details/1101236
