Yes, we have plenty of images of this species, but perhaps some will enjoy this one. There were several Buckeyes, plus a Painted Lady and American Lady, enjoying a salt sip on the sand of this road. Presumably these were males, as they are prone to look for salts. This one Buckeye allowed close approach, and I took about 20 photos. In this one the light was at just the right angle to highlight the wing venation and the hairiness of the abdomen.

I am glad that you submitted it.

Gorgeous shot.
