Very commonly found butterfly throughout the US
Male Horace Duskywing with its left wing chewed up.
Zooming around the Zinnias.
Hiding on a dead Zinnia -- thinking I can't see him/her.
Found feding on a wild, weedy plant with small, pink flowers.
It took a brief timeout to dry the dew, and soak up some sun.
First time I ever saw one of these butterflies - sipping on the Marigolds mid-July
Duskywing nectaring marigolds Dec. 05, 2012. West central Arkansas, zone 7b.
