This has been quite the insect week. I just keep finding more and more interesting things, and have been able to catch their photos. Today's find is another orange butterfly, so Maggie will be happy to see this.
This one is fairly common, but even so, I don't see them very often. It's called the common buckeye, Junonia coenia. Those big eyespots on the wings may deter birds from eating them. I learned that they are most likely to be seen in Michigan in the late summer and fall, so that fits. Maybe I'll see one again and be able to get more views.
