  1. Nice trip Lisa! You and Rob did well. Since this year has been my year to immerse into butterflying, I can tell you that your “patch species” is a Crimson Patch, as I guess that you couldn’t help but notice them when you visited Frontera Audubon Thicket in Weslaco. A relatively tough butterfly to find, except for how many are at Frontera. Nice!
