Butterfly

I was wrong in identifying it as a Question Mark and it is indeed a Comma. The two are very similar in appearance, but the most obvious difference is with the three black circular marking in a row on the upper wing. The Question Mark has a dash or line above the top black circle and the Comma doesn't. This doesn't have the dash or line so is an Eastern Comma. Sorry for confusing you.

I agree with Alison Peter, this looks like an Eastern Comma.

The butterfly you're wondering about is called a Question Mark Butterfly. There is another one very similar to it called the Comma Butterfly.

I'm pretty certain that this is the Eastern Comma butterfly.
