Common Buckeye butterfly

(Common) Buckeye butterfly (Junonia coenia)

Common Buckeye butterflies (Junonia coenia) seem to be especially hyperactive. I followed this colorful beauty from place to place and waited a long time before it spread its wings for the preceding photo. Worth the extra effort, wouldn’t you agree?

This individual was spotted during a photowalk at Huntley Meadows Park on 02 October 2014.
