Buckeye Butterfly

Buckeyes seem particularly numerous this year.

Buckeyes don't winter well in the north so they migrate just like monarchs. They aren't picky about host plants; figwort, plantain, stonecrop, and vervain are a few plants they lay eggs on.

I had one little guy hanging onto my fishing arm the other day. I don't know exactly why he liked my arm so well but he held on even as I casted my line out. He did bring me luck, making him the best kind of fishing buddy.
