While spending some time on iNaturalist this morning; I ran into this old
geezer butterfly.
An incredibly worn and beat up American False Comma aka Compton
Tortoiseshell
https://inaturalist.ca/observations/145431138
I don't recall ever encountering any nymphalid butterfly in such an ancient
and tattered
condition. Comparison of a more 'normal' aged individual with a fresh one
is here:

And another more normal hibernated individual is here:
