Milbert's Tortoiseshell Butterfly

The underside wings of this Milbert's Tortiseshell Butterfly were of a very rich dark brown colour having a lighter brown sub-marginal band. When it began to open its wings slightly I got a glimpse of the rich orange and yellow hues of its outer wings. This butterfly was feeding on Yellow Cone Flowers in my flower garden today.
