A real surprise was at least four Violet-banded Skippers, My first for Cameron County.
Butterfly watchers go to Resaca hoping for Blue Metalmarks and they were out in force today. A Walker's Metalmark was also seen but I missed it.
Another specialty for the park is Boisduval's Yellow. I only saw one but it was very cooperative.
Two Orange-barred Sulphurs were nice.
Mexican Bluewings were common on the Ebony Trail but I failed to find the other park specialty, Band-celled Sister.
Silver-banded Hairstreak is always a treat.
A faded female Julia Heliconian was also on the Ebony Trail.
And one last area specialty, Mimosa Skipper.
