Common Buckeye

Posted on Jun 12, 2015

It may not be the most picturesque background, but even the jagged pavement cannot take away the look of this beautiful Common Buckeye (Junonia coenia) butterfly. I wanted to be sure to get a decent photograph of this individual, my first of the year, and it was not at all interested on landing on anything natural. After watching it for a few minutes I moved on, hoping for many reasons that there will be more of them to come this year. As we go through June many more butterflies will be coming out to see us, and we will share them with you.
