Along the Willow Lakes Trail the frog fruit was blooming and loaded with butterflies. Best was this rare East-Mexican White-Skipper. Several have been seen this summer.
Nearby was a Turk's-cap White-Skipper.
Three Banded Peacocks were noteworthy.
Dozens of White Peacocks nectared on the frog fruit.
As did this Mimosa Skipper. They were out in force today.
A sharp Gray-Hairstreak.
Turquoise antenna knobs a blazing, if Great Southern Whites could talk they would sound like Foghorn Leghorn.
Twenty five Pale-banded Crescents were my most ever for one day.
It's hard for this Rounded Metalmark to hide behind this frog fruit flower.
Well, while most of the butterflies were enjoying frog fruit, this White-striped Longtail exhibited a more exotic palate. I guess it's an acquired taste.
First butterfly of the day was this poor Ruddy Daggerwing.
