They are beautiful
Have not seen one in Orlando.

Interesting,
I've seen them on dead animals too. Usually I see them feeding on seeping tree sap or rotting fruit though (they love old stone fruits sitting under the trees).

This particular one is very nice - pretty coloring above and below.

correct
Polygonia interrogationis

 
Thanks.
both times I have photographed them they were eating manure. One time coyote scat, this time, chicken yard manure.
