Question Mark, Polygonia interrogationis
Question Marks overwinter as adults, seeking shelter under bark or in brush piles. They live in the woods and feed on sap and animal droppings instead of flowers.
This one is feeding on mashed bananas, brown sugar and beer spread onto a tree trunk on a warm, early March day in Missouri.
