Lepidopterans of Brazos Bend State Park

If you are a blogger like me you may have a stash of drafts sitting in your writing platform waiting to be published. Many of mine will never see the light of day but I thought I should dig this one out and blow the dust off of it and share some photos from a few years ago that I intended to post but never did! One or two might have made it into a wrap-up post about a camping trip but I believe the majority haven’t been shared. It’s mostly an eye-candy post, to feast your eyes on the beauty of the lepidopterans!

Looks like state parks are potentially opening back up here next week after being closed for about two weeks. There will be caveats in visiting and I’m not sure if we will visit any or not. We shall see! Until then I’m on the lookout around the yard and have been seeing plenty.

Onward to the butterflies…
