Wore myself plum out!

Mac and I went to Big Bend National Park today. I was determined to find a Big Bend Scrub-Hairstreak butterfly. When I saw that acres and acres of its host plant Texas False Agave (Hechtia texensis) were blooming I figured it would be a sure thing. But after many hours of searching, nary a one.

I guess this Bee Assassin bug (Apiomerus spissipes) dining on a bee it assassinated will have to be my consolation prize. 

Loved the Red-spined Prickly-pears (Opuntia spinosabacca).
