Nature's Camouflage

A butterfly blends in with the leaves at the Grapevine Botanical Gardens on March 16, 2011. Large Size


The butterfly is a Goatweed Leafwing (Anaea andria). I did see it in flight briefly and the upperside of wings were mostly orange. I had never seen this species in the DFW area before; or perhaps I saw it at a distance and always assumed it was a Comma or Question Mark.
