Spring at Last

Spring at Last
Newly emerged from metamorphosis, this beauty dries it wings in the faint sunlight. Nature preserve, May, 2015


Throughout its range, from sea level to moderate elevations, the Eastern Comma (Polygonia comma) is associated with rich deciduous woodlands. It occupies forest clearings, sunny spots along woodland roads, and open areas in the vicinity of its food plants, not uncommonly in close proximity to buildings. This butterfly seldom visits flowers, but rather feeds on sap, rotting fruit, salts and minerals from puddling, and dung.

Nice to look at this when I'm listening Radiolab and story about butterflies at the same time (and how they retain memory through the process)
