Tired but good day

I went to Big Bend National Park with a friend today, determined to find at least one lifer butterfly. We found two for her and one for me. The first one is a Poling's Hairstreak, new for both of us. We were very excited.

Poling’s Hairstreak is restricted to a very small area on three isolated, “sky islands” mountain ranges—the Davis and Chisos mountains of Texas and the Organ mountains of New Mexico—and south into the state of Coahuila, Mexico.

The second one is a Texas Roadside Skipper, new for my friend.

We saw other good butterflies too. Got a better photo of a Mallow Scrub Hairstreak than I had before.

We dropped by the oasis this morning and saw this awesome collared lizard. Have no idea what it is.
