Mourning Cloaks

We were hiking in a city park in Columbus; and we made two sightings of
mourning cloaks.  City park or not, it is still a pretty isolated place.
A surprising number of wildflowers are reasserting themselves there.  I
saw some bloodroot poking up among those raggedy mint like plants. Both times,
they were in pairs.  How common are these butterflies?  Could anyone sort
of summarize their habits?
