Butterflies: Northern Pearly-eye

Photo of Northern Pearly-eye (Enodia anthedon)

A friend spotted this Northern Pearly-eye (Enodia anthedon) along a dirt section of the Eastern Trail in Biddeford, ME. These butterflies are known for visiting carrion, fungi, wounded trees (for sap), and, as is evidenced by today's photo, scat. Apparently, adult Northern Pearly-eyes do not visit flowers.
