Mitchell's Satyr


This looks exactly like a Mitchell's satyr, but it definitely isn't in Michigan or Indiana. Anyone?

  1. They don't pause long for us to get shots of them although this one accommodated you very well.

  2. I am hopeless with names but I do thinks it's a lovely capture! I'm sure the big spots do well at keeping predators at bay.

  3. Certainly looks like one to me. So maybe its range is expanding?

  14. I hadn't heard of this butterfly, so I looked it up. Sounds like it is very rare and a protected one. It sure looks like the photos I saw, so if it is indeed a Mitchell's satyr he really got far from home! Very interesting. And great capture!

  15. It is an unusual butterfly. It may have tried to migrate a different way this year. We have some butterflies now in our state that I never ever saw as a kid in southern Iowa.
