Eastern Comma Butterfly - Orange Wings with Black Spots

An Eastern Comma (Polygonia comma) butterfly sitting on a log. The Easter Comma has orange wings with black spots. The edges of the wings will be a dark brown and the hind wings will have brighter yellowish spots on the edge.

The Eastern Comma looks very similar to the Question Mark butterfly.
