Sighting for November 2, 2015

Sandy-Crystal Vaughn

National Butterfly Center
Hidalgo County, TX

I was on a field trip and the group was in the “back 70” at NBC after lunch. An offer was made to take those of us who wanted to the Visitor’s Center. I walked the Hackberry Trail after getting back and at the end of it and to the right was a storage area. The Ruddy Daggerwing was on the other side with a couple of folks excitedly taking images. This butterfly had been on my list to be seen for a very long time. What a great way to end a day of butterfly chasing!
