Thanks Adam, I am pretty taken with the colors.
great spotting...I love the leafy looking wings
Thank you for the ID Information Gatorfellows and AshishNimkar.
Looks like a Satyr Comma butterfly. The definitive ID mark is on the hind underwing. The ID marking on the top is a narrow orange border on the upper hind wing with a black spot in the middle. I have an Eastern ref book so check your range http://www.butterfliesandmoths.org/speci...
