Eastern Comma? - Polygonia interrogationis

Eastern Comma? - Polygonia interrogationis
Wichita, Kansas, USA
September 3, 2006
Unfortunately, these are the best shots I could get. This fella kept his distance, wouldn't let me get in position to shoot from a better angle. I would like to try to ID it, if possible. I'm thinking it is an Eastern Comma, from the markings I can see. Or is it something else? Thanks a lot.

Question Mark
Polygonia interrogationis. It has the extra black horizontal mark in the forewing (about 1 o'clock from the twig in the foreground).

 
Thanks a lot...
I thought I might be overlooking something. I appreciate your help. I can now see the difference.
