Artist's Description

The Common Buckeye Butterfly prefers open, sunny areas with low vegetation and some bare ground. Males perch during the day to watch for females, flying periodically to patrol or to chase other flying insects. Females lay eggs singly on leaf buds or on the upperside of host plant leaves upon which the caterpillar feeds (including plants from the snapdragon, plantain and acanthus families). Adult butterflies live for about 10 days.The butterfly’s fore wing has 2 orange cell bars and 2 eye spots, the largest (and lower) of which is contained in a white band. The hind wing also has 2 eyes pots; the upper one is largest and contains a magenta crescent. The underside of the hind wing is brown or tan in the wet season (summer) form and rose-red in the dry season (fall) form. This little guy was fluttering along the ground and FINALLY sat still long enough for me to get a shot. I took this on the shore of Lake Telemark in Rockaway, NJ. I used a Nikon Coolpix L110 digital camera.
