Yep, More Butterflies!!!

Another brood of Gray Hairstreaks led to this little guy showing up in the garden recently. And at work, I found another area where, today, I found Palmer's Metalmarks, Queens, and, quite surprisingly, about half a dozen Variegated Fritillaries, in addition to all of the Checkered Whites and various Sulphurs and Oranges that are so common here. It seems like another brood of Sleepy Oranges has hatched out, judging by the number of them at the museum.

Oh yeah! Had to go out to the Army Blockhouse today, way out in the desert at Launch Complex 33, and found about half a dozen Western Pygmy Blues - the smallest butterfly in the United States - hope to have photos soon!
