Also present were my first Pavon Emperors for the year with a nice male showing some color. A little later a female was found.
More Mexican Silverspots were present including an amorous male with an almost unconscious female. I think her batteries were getting weak.
Malachites are hard to beat.... big and colorful!
Here's some more showy nymphalids: Tropical Leafwing, Mexican Fritillary, Julia Heliconian and Mexican Bluewing.
This buckeye looks a great deal like the Mangrove Buckeye in Glassberg's guide.
Some other uncommon butterflies were Curve-winged Metalmark and Marius Hairstreak.
Cassius Blue and a photobomb bee.
