20th Annual Texas Butterfly Festival Field Trip Day 3





On our third day Mike Rickard and Ginny Musgrave led our next trip to Palo Alto, Resaca de la Palma and Camp Lula Sams.

I fell in love with the beautiful Guava Skipper.  Just look at those colors!

After we left Resaca de la Palma, we went to Camp Lulu Sams.  Camp Lula Sams was built by the Earl C Sams Foundation and gifted to the Girl Scouts of South Texas in 1953.  Mike was sure we would see a Pale-rayed Skipper or a Strophius Hairstreak and we were fortunate enough to see both.





If you ever have an opportunity to attend the Texas Butterfly festival I highly recommend it.  I learned so much in those three days, and had such an enjoyable time.
