Butterfly on Mud at Low Tide - Limenitis arthemis

Butterfly on Mud at Low Tide - Limenitis arthemis
Tracys Landing, Anne Arundel County, Maryland, USA
October 8, 2009
Butterfly (Red-spotted Purple?)seems to be enjoying slurping something out of the Chesapeake Bay mud during an extra low tide. While the beaches have sand, the bottom becomes a goopy gray mud not far offshore. I will post one more picture.
