Absolutely beautiful Hoary Comma in the wetlands below Jordanelle Dam.  The underside of this butterfly is a beautiful intricate
gray pattern.  You can see a slender white "comma" on the underside that is definitive for this species.  According to
Bugguide.net these butterflies feed on nectar and berries.  © Carol Davis, 9-14-2008
