A common little butterfly, found across Texas and throughout the Southeastern United States. It is not always the easiest butterfly to photograph because it does not always sit still for long and it tends to prefer grassy underbrush.
It sometimes has a small orange spot on top of the hindwing. It always has two small black dots near the base of the hindwing. These dots distinguish it from similar butterflies.
It almost never sits with its wings open. To get a shot of the upperside of the wings will require a photo of it in flight.
