Description

I found this butterfly on the pavement as we were packing up from a day at Joe Pool lake. I was surprised he was still alive, but he was injured and unable to fly. The few missing parts of his wings didn't seem to be enough to prevent flight, but he had difficulty using his legs too, even though they were in tact. I enjoyed an extended photo session and found a grassy spot out of the wind to leave him. (Appears to be male based on the smaller size, long proboscis, and thinner black band on the bars.)
