The Lepidopterans of the Big Texas

They are only around when the camera is not. However, it is now the goal to document any and all if possible.

Not pictured but definitely about, the usual Monarch, the pleasant Gulf Frittilary, what I believe is either or both a crescentspot and/or a copper. We have this one particular thing they love (web suggests it could be a Bordered Patch based on the plant), but GC ripped it all out, but since it is pernicious, it came back, so in the Spring I shall be ready to document next years crop. I saw a Question Mark the other day, but if I pause to think about it, it could have been a Comma? It didn’t want to open its wings and I had no camera.

I give you the Red Admiral (commie!)

So shy with the wings

The Pipevine Swallowtail (not to be confused with the Spicebush Swallowtail)

GC snagged this one, and planted the flowers to begin with

Finally, the “Common” Buckeye. Thunder has some beauts of this one, but I’d never seen one until Cloverhill.

This one wanted to pose all sorts of ways
