Looking At Insects. #22 Butterfly.

Good morning everyone and Happy Sunday to you all!

Well, autumn is here so it is a good time for an autumn looking butterfly, and they can even be found this time of the year too. But this one was here back in early July and is the first time I have been able to photograph this particular butterfly. This is the “Milbert’s Tortoiseshell”. It is a real northern butterfly and can be found across most of Canada, but it can be found fairly far south as well. It has two broods per year and overwinters as an adult which will hide inside hollow logs, under bark or in outbuildings. It can come out fairly early in spring but I have not seen it before mid June. Have a wonderful Sunday and God bless!
