Davis Mountains Preserve (continuation)

There were hundreds, probably thousands, of AZ Sisters butterflies at the preserve yesterday.

And Two-tailed Swallowtails were easy to locate and photograph there, although not quite as abundant as the sisters were.

I attribute a great deal of the butterfly activity to the profusely blooming horsemint. It was everywhere.

Queen on horsemint

Devil's Claw was abundant but I didn't notice butterflies at it. Not sure what this next plant is, maybe some kind of blue dayflower.

And finally, here's an enigmatic butterfly. Brian thinks it's an intergrade between a Common and a Tropical Buckeye.

And I think, "once an artist, always an artist." So I photo-shopped the above photo just for the fun of it. Maybe I have too much time on my hands. LOL
