I photographed this butterfly sunning on the deck by the pool in early Sept. At first it looks quite plain, but some of the detail is stunning! I guess I am going to have to invest in some good insect id books to go with my new camera!
This beautiful butterfly is known as the Common Buckeye. We hope its human namesakes, all those Ohio voters in the Buckeye Swing State, get out to vote.
