New butterflies

Bordered patch
Chlosyne lacinia

Asterocampa celtis

Nowadays I just can't stand to walk by something in the Wildscape and not know what IT IS. So time to get out the camera, the field guide and the Internet. The border patches (host plants: sunflowers, ragweed and cocklebur) are visiting the lantana blooms while the hackberry emperors (host plant: hackberries) love the live oak sap. The latter is a new species to me! I've been thinking they were variegated fritillaries. Wrong!
