A Butterfly Called Rustic

This is the second time that I have seen and photographed this butterfly. The first time, the photos weren't that great as I was too far away from my subject. This time around I had one that was close enough and less afraid of me.The Rustic is a common forest butterfly so my research tells me but I've not seen it that often during my walks. This rusty colored butterfly is quite pretty as it fleets around, you will see flashes of white and brown much like a Spanish dancer's skirt.
It's under wing is pale brown with pale markings. This is the same butterfly that was sunning itself earlier. It sat on the moist road drawing minerals out of bird poo.
