Your letter to the bugman: Hi!
I was stalking butterflies around my sister’s garden with my camera when visiting her recently in Florida…I snapped a photo of this pretty lady/fellow but discovered I missed getting it with wings open. Is this a common buckeye? Thanks!

This is not a Buckeye. The two spots on the hind wings are distinguishing features of the American Lady. Here is a BugGuide image for comparison.
