This was the last "Common" Buckeye butterfly I saw in my Ohio garden. I took this back in 2015. They are beautiful little brown butterflies that don't call too much attention to themselves, until the sunlight shines on them in just the right way. Then you see their stunning beauty and iridescent colors of their 'eyes,' their 'buckeyes.'
I am not sure why I do not see them anymore. Living in the Buckeye State seems very sad without my little Buckeye friends.
Junonia coenia, known as the common buckeye or buckeye, is a butterfly in the family Nymphalidae. Its original ancestry has been traced to Africa. Named for its conspicuous target-shaped eyespots, the common buckeye, Junonia coenia Hübner, is one of the most distinctive and readily-identifiable North American butterflies.
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!
