Correction-Satyr not Eastern Comma Butterfly

3-23-08 CORRECTION--This is a Satyr Comma not an Eastern Comma butterfly (my butterfly identification skills are pretty basic).

In each of these pics the butterfly seems to hold it's head up at an angle--I don't know why it would. However, this position reveals it's striped jaw-area (not called a jaw on butterflies). The middle pic shows well a "comma" for which this species is named. It also shows how this butterfly blends into the leaf litter when it's wings are closed. SeEtta


Save trees in the Boreal forest for birds, not for paper--Opt out of catalogues
