(Common) Buckeye butterfly


(Common) Buckeye butterfly (Junonia coenia) is a medium-size brown butterfly with bold eyespots on the upper surfaces of its wings, feeding on Marigold flowers (Tagetes sp.).

I spotted the butterfly during a photowalk through the Children’s Garden, Hollin Meadows Science and Math Focus School. Photo 1 was cropped to highlight the butterfly; Photo 2 is the original photograph.

Tech Tips: Photo 1 was cropped using Apple “Aperture,” a professional-grade tool for organizing and adjusting photos.
