Question Mark butterfly

A Question Mark butterfly (Polygonia interrogationis) spotted during a photowalk through Huntley Meadows Park, Fairfax County, Virginia USA. One of two “punctuation mark” butterflies, the Question Mark is so named because of the question mark that appears on the underside of its wings; Comma butterflies (Polygonia c-album) feature a comma shape on the underside of their wings.
