Buckeye by the Choptank

While driving to the Assateague Island on Wednesday, we stopped for lunch at a lone picnic table by the Choptank River. The place was called the Choptank River Fishing Pier State Park. Afterwards, we took a short walk along the river accompanied by numerous butterflies.


They were common buckeyes (Junonia coenia). Common and pretty.

You can see the head of a snake on this shot if you look at it from a distance, or try sizing it as a thumbnail.
