Mourning Cloak

 The Mourning Cloak (Nymphalis antiopa) is a beautiful woodland species and member of the Nymphalidae family.  With one brood in June-July it is likely found in sunny forest clearings and edges.

 The summer brood, after heavy feeding, estivates until fall....with some migrating south.  These photos were taken in the Redmond Brook Preserve in Harrington, Maine.
