Buckeye Butterfly 

Junonia coenia

Late summer asters are the best place to find butterflies right now. The flowers are scattered all along the paths in the prairie.

This afternoon I found this Common Buckeye feeding on New England Aster. Despite the name (“New England Aster”) this wonderful plant is native to most of North America. If you want to help butterflies I encourage you to get this plant in your garden.
