WW: Common Buckeye Butterfly

Common Buckeye Butterfly Photo

"It's very tough for me to focus. I'm like: Look, something shiny! No, focus. Oh, there goes a butterfly!"
- Gabby Douglas

Usually I go to the Jamestown Settlement to learn about American history, but during our last trip to Virginia, I just chased this beautiful brown butterfly with blue eyespots around their Visitor Center.

  4. Those butterflies are so interesting. I have only recently learned they were buckeyes. I think they are rare around my parts (Utah) but I could be wrong. Thanks for linking up.

  17. What neat markings. Not so sure how I'd feel if it landed on my head, though. It looks pretty big, as far as butterflies go. So, how long did it take to finally get this perfect shot, anyway?

    1. Thanks! I followed it for about 5 minutes before I was satisfied with a shot. Ogre was laughing at me the whole time. ;D
