June 30, 2017

Location: Pelican Island NWR

I'm a Common Buckeye Butterfly,
I'm mostly orange and brown with purple eye spots.
When I'm a caterpillar I like to eat Snapdragons,
As a butterfly,  I like sunny, warm plots.

(Disclaimer: Due to a minor hand issue I've not been able to use my camera so am posting some older pictures that I haven't included before on this blog.  I will resume my regular 8:00 am postings soon, but for now, please enjoy these blasts from the past.)
