Pictured here is an example of the Common Buckeye butterfly, Junonia coenia in the family Nymphalidae. They are named for the large eyespot markings on their upper wings. Unfortunately, this butterfly would not open its wings long enough for me to take a photograph.
It was intent on flitting around my lawn while I was photographing a Texas Horned lizard nearby. I have never seen this kind of butterfly before. Since I moved to West Texas, I’ve been able to see many things I have not seen before which delights me.
In the last photo you can see the fully extended probscis. There were no flowers blooming in the bermuda grass, so I guess this fellow was looking for drink of water or some needed minerals.
