Very Cool, Despite the Name*

Common Buckeye

Junonia coenia


I've been searching for one of these ALL YEAR, and finally today at Longwood Gardens, I saw not one but probably a dozen of them. They are amazingly beautiful butterflies, and I finally get to add one to my lifelist.


*Oh, and about the name. Being a Penn Stater, it's hard to like ANYTHING "Buckeye". =-)
