Does anyone know what kind of butterfly this is?
Just wondering if anyone knows what kind of butterfly this is? I’m really quite sure it’s not a monarch.

I sent an email last night to a butterfly professional. Here’s the response:
It is a Compton Tortoiseshell butterfly. I photographed a few of these a week
or two ago.
They are very similar to Coma and Question Mark butterflies.
Thanks Gord! Look at his great site about butterfly watching in Ontario site at : http://www.web-nat.com/Butterfly/
