Buckeye butterfly on Sedum.



Buckeyes migrate from the southern US and Mexico to most of the rest of the US in the summer. Host plants are many and include Gerardia, Plantain - (Plantago lanceolata) and Snapdragon (Antirrhinum majus).

Eggs are dark green, laid singly on leaves.


I have yet to see any Buckeye butterfly eggs or really small caterpillars. I have had caterpillars a couple of different times though.

Here is one sort of from overhead and the other picture is from a different angle, kind of from the side:





Adults feed on flower nectar and possibly rotting fruit.



Adult from side, summer form on a Butterfly Bush.



Adult with wings open on Sedum.
