Unquestionable Beauty

Question Mark

Polygonia interrogationis

 

When I saw this butterfly, the brilliant autumn sunset red color of the wings caught my eye - so much so that I literally ran after it to try to figure out what it was. I was somewhat disappointed (just a little, really) to find out it was a Question Mark. But as I looked closer, that disappointment changed to amazement at the rich tones of this beautiful specimen.

 

So very definitely worth a look large.
