Buckeye Butterflies have returned to my area in a big way! This one is an especially gorgeous one. At times he looks a bit dull, but when the sun hits him just right, he is so colorful! I love the orange red bars on his 'shoulders' and those eye spots just glow an iridescent blue/purple. This is his brilliant dorsal view, but when he closes those wings up (ventral view) he is simply a brown butterfly!
2019 has been the year of the Buckeye Butterfly! I am thrilled to say that this year, I have been seeing these little guys everywhere I go in Columbus, Ohio. Being the Buckeye State seems that we should be filled with these beautiful creatures, but the past few years have been empty. I actually went several years without seeing one!
Whenever I get close enough to try to photograph a Buckeye they fly off, (not ones to dilly-dally!) I don't mind though. I am just thrilled to be in the chase again!
Thank you so much for looking at my images. I appreciate that very much.
I am very concerned with our environment and have decided to donate any money I make from any sales of this image to the ENVIRONMENTAL DEFENSE FUND.....because the Earth needs a good lawyer! We all need to speak up and support efforts to protect our environment. We will not get a second chance!
