Butterflies of fall

Angled-winged butterflies are distinctive because they look like fallen leaves. In fact, they will often perch on fallen leaves, unlike this one who has taken a liking to my raincoat.

These butterflies love fruit and, according to my Audubon Field Guide, they become intoxicated from rotten fruit.

I  hope that isn't a statement about the condition of my raincoat.
