I was impressed by the bluish (violet) tinge on the ventral surface of this
Question Mark today that was feeding on the fruit sack (watermelon).
Apparently, from comments on Randy Emmitt's site,
http://www.rlephoto.com/anglewings/mark_question02.htm, this is a fresh
individual. It is a summer (black) form. I have this species "regularly" and
individuals vary considerably even down to the prominence of the "question
mark." Comments on this analysis are appreciated.
