A little beat up, but still beautiful, this is the Common Buckeye, also known as Junonia coenia. The name is due to the eye-like markings on the wings. They are in the group of butterflies known as the Brush-footed or four-footed butterflies due to their hairy, reduced forelegs that resemble brushes.
