Question Mark

Angle Wing????
I can’t find a photo of this butterfly online anywhere. The closest I’ve seen to it is an Anglewing on your site. I shot him along Pinto Creek near Brackettville, TX during the 2007 Monarch Migration. Thank you!

Hi Genie,
The numerous interogation marks in your subject line has led us to believe that your are somewhat certain that this is a Question Mark Butterfly, Polygonia interrogationis, and we agree. Jeffrey Glassberg’s Butterflies Through Binoculars books (both West and East) are must haves for all butterfly observers. He writes: “Very rarely a Question Mark will have the dot of its ‘question mark’ missing, leaving you to question the correct punctuation of the species.” Your specimen has a defined dot.
