Boyce Thompson Butterflies

A cool spell (around 90 degrees) allowed for a quick trip to Boyce Thompson Arboretum on Sunday. The highlight had to be the huge numbers of butterflies, some of which are shown here.

Ceraunus Blue - there were hundreds, if not thousands of these

Texan Crescent

Giant Swallowtail - interesting perspective

And another Giant Swallowtail:

Southern Dogface

There were also several dozen Queen's, some pipevine swallowtails, and western pygmy blue's.
