    That is a Question Mark Butterfly. See the small white curved line on the wing. Good job.

    Thanks. I appreciate it.

    Thank you. I was having a really hard time finding an id on this. The closest thing I was thinking was maybe an Eastern Comma Butterfly. I think the Question Mark fits better..I appreciate the ID.

    Outstanding! The first and last are my favorite. I chased butterflies all weekend long with no luck. Right before I would snap the shot they would fly away. Great series!
