Butterfly 3Butterfly 5

This butterfly, photographed on September 21, the first official day of Autumn, displays an interesting adaptation. Note that at its back end, there are markings that resemble two eyes. Seeing this, predators are apt to attack the least important part of the butterfly, affording it better chance to escape predation.
