Buckeye on the sidewalk


I encountered this butterfly during my after-lunch walk one day last week. It was flying around the sidewalk and often settling down either on the sidewalk or on the road only to be sent back in the air by every passing car.

I believe it is a common buckeye (Junonia coenia). This was the best and the closest picture I could get with my iPhone.
