Phote Alt Tag Goes Here.

Buckeye butterfly

A buckeye butterfly feeds on a flower on Fort McCoy's South Post Nov. 1.

The buckeye is found in all parts of the United States, except the northwest, and is especially common in the South and the California coast.

Its habitat is open areas with low vegetation and some bare ground. The butterfly is fairly common around areas of the post, according to Wildlife Biologist Tim Wilder with the Directorate of Public Works Environmental Division Natural Resources Branch.
