Junonia coenia



Here's the most recent sketch posted over at the Frantic Stamper blog...



I thought I'd bust out some supplies I purchased over at the FS store to make my card, specifically some Tim Holtz tape & some 7 Gypsies rub-ons.


And I can never pass up an opportunity to educate...

from Gardens with Wings

Common Buckeye (Junonia coenia)


This butterfly is a beautiful creature that is a must-have in all butterfly gardens. It is a fabulous chestnut brown with 6 bright colorful eye spots. These smaller butterflies are quick, energetic fliers that are entertaining to watch as they flutter close to the ground. Buckeyes can be hard to see when hiding because they are very well camouflaged when they have their wings folded up, appearing as a dull brown leaf. Luckily, more times than not they will be basking in the sun showing off their colors. Gardens With Wings™ are not complete without the Buckeye fluttering around.
