May 28, 2012 Butterfly Monitoring

The 2012 Memorial Day holiday followed tropical storm Beryl in our area, and that's when we went out for our monthly Butterfly Monitoring survey on May 28.  There was very little blooming in the Guana Dam transect (Transect A), but we did see a variety of butterfly species including the Horace's Duskywing (Erynnis horatius) (Hesperiidae family), Cassius (Leptotes cassius) and Ceraunus Blues (Hemiargus ceraunus) (Lycaenidae familyand Palamedes Swallowtail (Papilio palamedes) (Papilionidae Family).
