More Buckeye Butterflies

I still have some Buckeyes fluttering around the New England Aster. I'm seeing lots of honeybees too but I feel like I've photographed them to death to a point. Buckeyes are pretty in that their wing patterns almost look like they're fake. It's almost an imitation of a butterfly, like something a child would draw on paper and make into origami. 

Their pattern reminds me of those fake butterflies gardening catalogs sometimes use to promote plants as "butterfly friendly!" They're pretty all the same.
