Mourning Cloak Nymphalis antiopa

Mourning Cloak Nymphalis antiopa

Papilionibus > Lepidoptera > Nymphalidae

Large, common butterfly with a long lifespan and one of the first butterflies which can be spotted in spring.

Easy identifiable with the brown-reddish wings a row of bluish spots on a dark band and a white band at the most posterior part of the wings.

I spotted this butterfly in almost all parks around Montreal usually when they are spreading their wings on the warmer ground of a path in spring.
