So nice to see a pretty butterfly this late in the year! This one is an eastern comma, Polygonia comma, named for a comma-shaped mark on it's underside. The larva feeds on nettles and elm, while the adults are piss-poor pollinators--preferring rotten fruit and puddles of urine over flower nectar.

They must be very successful here, then--we have lots of rotten fruit and piss puddles so I can only assume they've been spreading those.
