I think the Eastern Comma butterfly is one of the prettiest of the butterflies out here in Estes Park and Rocky Mountain National Park. I just love its orange coloring and its distinctive shaped wings.

The Eastern Comma may be spotted in woods near rivers, ponds, marshes, swamps, and other water sources. This butterfly seldom visits flowers, but rather feeds on sap, rotting fruit, salts and minerals from puddling, and dung.

Have you ever seen an Eastern Comma butterfly?
