We arrived at the wildflower center in the early afternoon with the light just right, producing glorious color everywhere we turned. The light made the Virginia creepers at the entrance look spectacular in their fall dress. Virginia creeper might be one of my favorite native vines in the fall.

Out and about in the gardens there were quite a bit of butterflies flitting about like this sulphur.

And this skipper. I tried to identify it but without a photo of the wings open I am not having much luck.

This gulf frittilary was a great ‘old’ friend to see.

I think this is a common checkered skipper.

Light, the light…slanting in from the west, it gave a lot of wonderful photo opportunities. I left my dSLR at home and opted for the point and shoot the entire weekend.

It’s been a good foliage year, from the meager amount I was able to see. The color in the Hill Country was just as good as it was over here in SE Texas.
