Carolina Satyr (Hermeuptychia sosybius)

The Carolina Satyr is the most common butterfly in, and around the edge of the woods in the spring.

Usually they rest with their wings folded.

Occasionally, particularly when it is cold, they will rest with open wings in a sunny spot in the woods to absorb the warmth.
