World Birding Center HQ at Bentsen-Rio Grande Valley State Park, Hidalgo County, Texas, USA December 22, 2006
A few of us were admiring and photographing an extremely rare butterfly (Strophius Hairstreak; I'll get around to posting it eventually) when I noticed this guy lurking on a nearby leaf of the same yellow-blooming Lantana shrub. Have seen the critter only 2-3 times. I am guessing at the species ID based on comments posted here on BugGuide about another individual photographed in Texas, not too much further north....
