Common Buckeye (Junonia coenia)
A late-summer immigrant to Wisconsin from more southerly regions; does not overwinter this far north. I photographed this one this afternoon at the Grady Tract of the University of Wisconsin Arboretum. I would love to document a life cycle on this beautiful creature; perhaps next spring I can spot one ovipositing on some plantain.
