Question Mark Butterfly on Ashe Juniper 0763

Click for greater clarity.

The last time you saw an Ashe juniper, Juniperus ashei, looking orangeish-brown, it was from a zillion little pollen-laden cones. Here it’s just from one thing, a question mark butterfly, Polygonia interrogationis, a species making its debut in these pages today. This picture is from February 13th in my neighborhood.

This has been an unusually insecty week, with pictures of a wasp, then an ant, and now a butterfly.
