Mourning Cloak Butterfly

Lily and I found this on the road a few weeks ago.  It was alive and flew away before I got very close to it.  It is a Mourning Cloak.    Read the information at the link - this is a very interesting butterfly.

This one looks pretty rough and I'm guessing it's an overwintered one looking for a mate.  They're prettier in the fall when the light outer edge is a bright sparkling gold.
