Observation notes: This was the month of an invasion of south Texas specialties' into our Ranch Native Plant Garden.. Great Southern White, Laviana White-Skipper, Dorante's Longtail, White-striped Longtail, Long-tailed Skipper, Coyote Cloudywing, Orange-barred Sulphur and possible Tropical Buckeye (Still being studied), This is also my 2nd Soldier seen on the ranch. The first was back on 11-7-2008 (I can submit it too if you wish). The Butterfly was feeding with about 20 Queens on Blue Mist in the front Native Plant Garden of our ranch house. It shows the typical dark central area, veining in the forewing and fewer spots on submarginal area. My wife also got a few shots of the bug with a Queen, but both were out of clear focus.
