Here is a fairly common one. Maybe you've seen this one before. It's a small one so you'd have to have looked close to recognize it. The bright little eye spots really contrasts with the mostly gray wings and body.
This one is perhaps my favorite. Again I was dealing with a species that rarely sat still and I had to wait for it. It's a relatively large species. Notice the bluish irridescence on the lower back? I spotted this one at Friederich Park.
