From the field...

I'm never sure what these are called, so someone please help with the name. There are dozens of them all in the field.
Pretty & nice composition.

Meadow Brown? Owl butterfly? Not sure. Maybe worth a peek on an internet search for local wildlife. Very pretty!

Pretty shot. I think this might be a Buckeye Butterfly.

I have a lot of these, too. I used to think it was a moth, but a neighbor thought it was a Meadow Brown butterfly. Nice shot.

Common Buckeye (Junonia coenia):

Meadow Browns (Maniola jurtina) have a prominent eyespot on the upper side of the forewings, but they are not native to the U.S. and I presume this photo was taken “at home” (in the U.S.).

Love the eye on the butterfly's wings - Buckeye is such a pretty butterfly

I’m about to post a pic with two butterflies! I don’t know what either one is named. I love the colors and the way your butterfly stands out.

Such a pretty butterfly! It makes some fun cartoonish face with its wings.

Well captured -- especially the two 'eyes' in its wings.

2nd one I've seen today on 365!

Just a brown butterfly but as pretty as a picture. Love the eyes & stripy border.
August 24th, 2020  
Those eyes are watching you. I like the pattern on the butterfly and also on the grass.

@rhoing Ah, thanks for that! I am English, so not familiar with the US varieties in the same way. Lovely to find out what it was.
