Nice pic. Is this a Question Mark Butterfly?

I really don't know. anybody have more suggestions. I'm going to use your suggestion, RegoR. Sam

sam, looks like a "Green Comma" to me.

Butterflies confused me a lot, so a while back i downloaded a list of Newfoundland butterflies from a MUN website, then did a photo search on each species listed. I saved sample photos to compare my photos and sightings.

I have a pretty good database of butterflies to reference now

You are right, Tom. I just googled "Green Comma Butterfly", and up came images that looked exactly like the one I posted. Thanks, again. I will change the name.
