QUESTION MARK or EASTERN COMMA.

It was seen flying around the canopy of a large elm just outside my office window on the OSU campus. Viewed with bionculars, the wing shape and upperwing and underwing coloration suggested Eastern Comma or Questionmark, although I didn't see it well enough to rule out one or the other.

I was at the park working on my paper, while my car was charging. I saw this white squirrel running around! He sure doesn't blend in well.

Sorry about the poor picture quality, I only had my phone.
