Artist's Description

These fast, agile fliers are – are you ready? – called anglewings because of the angles on their wing margins:>). The “Question Mark” is a close cousin and often confused with the Comma. The underside of their wings is patterned mainly in brown and is a perfect camouflage among dried leaves or against a tree truck.

This picture was taken on Cape Cod in Barnstable County, Massachusetts, USA, on May 20, 2012. There must have been a recent hatch as the butterflies were numerous and in mint condition.
