3-year hiatus by rhoing

3-year hiatus

Common Buckeye (“Junonia coenia”). This is apparently only marginally a "resident," but most likely a "temporary colonist," and I haven't posted a Common Buckeye for 3 years — http://365project.org/rhoing/365/2013-10-19 — so I was happy to see some this year. As my regional coordinator at BAMONA wrote me almost 4 years ago, http://365project.org/rhoing/365/2012-11-04 » “… Buckeyes come to us from warmer climates as temporary colonists and cannot survive winter even in your neighborhood. … Your populations of J. coenia, like mine, will be replenished from the south next year.”

Confirmed at BAMONA as “Junonia coenia” or “Common Buckeye”; http://www.butterfliesandmoths.org/sighting_details/1097697
