Eronia cleodora

Eronia cleodora: the Vine-leaf Vagrant. I happened upon this butterfly in our garden, my one and only record. I think it was recently emerged, and possibly the drop of water on its tail may have been secretion of excess fluid. It allowed me my two insurance shots then promptly left.
