    I took this beautiful picture of a butterfly near Chatterbox Falls. Does anybody know the name of it?
    Thanks Marie

    Looks very similar to Europe's Comma Polygonia c-album - so probably in the same genus. Check out Polygonia satyrus and Polygonia gracilis, both listed for BC.

    Thank you for your quick response.
    I checked the information you sent and I believe it is the polygonia gracilis.
    What a beautiful butterfly!
