Little Wood Satyr

I spent most of the evening fooling around on Facebook looking at photos from an old bike trip that a friend posted, and trying to ID the riders. So, the blog gets short shrift. Just a dead butterfly.

This is the Little Wood Satyr. It's the most common dark butterfly of late spring and mid-summer. It can be seen everywhere east of the Mississippi in the US.

There are a number of other Satyrs, but they have different spots and some have extremely limited ranges. All others are lighter colored.

Sorry it's dead, but it's a very nervous flier, and I probably wouldn't have a picture if I hadn't found it this way.

I don't think I've ever seen one of these before. There are a lot of red admirals where I live.

cool butterfly. The blog may have been shorted but it still made for a good post
