Here is the neighbor's yard I located it in. See if you can find the Zebra Heliconian in the lantana. (You'll have to click on it to enlarge.)

Surprise butterfly today
Today was an annual July 4th BBQ that my husband and I attend every year at a friend's house. While I was chowing down on the BBQ a very interesting butterfly flitted past the shindig. I managed to take off after it with the only camera I had with me, my little Lumix. Really hated not having my Canon after I located the critter in a neighbor's yard at some lantana. I quickly scooted a chair over to the dividing concrete wall and hung over it, taking as many photos as I could. None turned out satisfactory, even though the butterfly was very cooperative. Only, if, if... But at least I documented it, a lovely Zebra Heliconian. I had seen one before in Austin (last year) but never expected to see it in Alpine. Guess I need to pay more attention to yards in town from now on.
