I discovered this one while splitting wood. i keep wondering if it was hidden in the woodpile to escape the cold.

very fine photos there, tom. This late, but then again, I don't know how late there are here. never gave me a thought before. they just came and went.

do they survive the winter i wonder. I need to look up the life cycle i guess

I have been reading that, apparently the adults can hibernate to fly again in the spring, often as early as march or April in some areas.

I've not known they Hibernate. learning many new things lately. Guess you will have to tag that Butterfly. we need an update next year. good info, though.
