This butterfly is called the Northern Pearly Eye and it is a common butterfly in northern Michigan this time of year. It is brown with black spots, and can easily be confused with other small spotted butterflies. The Northern Pearly Eye is a bit larger than most, and often has an erratic flight high in the air. Consult a butterfly guidebook in order to tell all the different species apart.

This is a picture of large brown butterfly with eyespots, called the Northern Pearly Eye.  It is found in Michigan and other Great Lake states in the summer months.  It is rather hard to tell apart from other little brown butterflies with eyespots, so consult a book, such as Butterflies of the Northwoods.
