Common Buckeye-again?

I just couldn't resist. Today I saw that a big patch of volunteer marigolds were teaming with insect life. Most of the insects were bees, which is great--maybe they're making a come-back here in the Canon City area. But there among the marigolds was one beautiful Common Buckeye. With a small orange highlights in it's wings, it just made such a pretty picture among these orange marigolds so I just had to share these pics. Marigolds are native to many areas of the United States including several nearby states, they do not appear to be native in Colorado. SeEtta
