This next one was very tough to get a shot of. He was a little more camera shy than the others. These photos had to be zoomed and cropped, so not the best, but still a stunning butterfly.
The reason for the name Question Mark is because in the photo below, the white markings on the wing look like a question mark.
This next beauty was very peculiar. At first I thought it was a monarch until it opened up its wings. While, the back of him is black, white and blue, the underside of the wings were orange, black and white.
Limenitis arthemis arthemis
Oh and I had to look up why they were on the beach. After combing a few websites it looks like these are all male butterflies and them hanging out on the beach is called, "mud puddling." They are gathering sodium and nitrates which are found dissolved in mud or damp sand. Interesting!
