Nymphs, Satyrs, Buckeyes, Monarchs

Common Wood-nymph (Cercyonis pegala).
Little Wood-satyr (Megisto cymela).(One of the eyespot patterns is torn.)Common Buckeye (Junonia coenia).Monarch (Danaus plexippus).

All spotted earlier this month at Mount Loretto State Unique Area. The Little Wood-satyrs are early summer fliers, which probably explains why I’m not too familiar with them. It’s hot out there in the meadows of Mount Loretto and I don’t think I’ve been there in July before.

    These are lovely. I must get to Mount Loretto. Especially love the Buck Eye. I have been enjoying the fireflies in the park beside me, so went back into the archives to read your posts. 🙂
