|This is a female. I want a photo of a male now.|
Today at CMO I pumped a bunch of water into the stucco tank. It had gone down an inch overnight and the dirt tank had gone down 2" so I figured might as well. Doesn't feel good to transfer it to a leaking tank, but if it'll last longer there I have to do it.
While the water was pumping I looked for odes and butterflies. Didn't find anything really interesting. Here's a pair of mating Red Saddlebags.
This next one is a female Flame Skimmer.
Not many butterflies at the oasis yet. Here's a Texas Powdered-Skipper, I think. Brian can correct me if it's an Arizona Powdered-Skipper. The latter is the more common at CMO.
