Question Mark Butterfly
|[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note|
|This pretty butterfly was resting on a car headlight, periodically opening and closing its' wings.|
More info on the Question Mark Butterfly:
Found primarily in wooded area that have open spaces, such as city parks, suburbs, and fencerows, adult males will sit during the afternoon hours on tree trunks or leaves waiting for females. They will, however, leave their perches to chase other insects and even birds. Females will lay eggs alone, or stacked, on the leaves of plants.

It's very hard to catch these guys with open wings. I've been chasing them around for a few months now. ha ha
Great shot, particularly the closed wing version. Very good focus and clarity and you did a great job showing the distinct question mark on the wing.
