Bentsen Lepidophora #2 - Lepidophora vetusta

Bentsen Lepidophora #2 - Lepidophora vetusta
World Birding Center at Bentsen-Rio Grande Valley State Park, Hidalgo County, Texas, USA
July 13, 2007
Another Lepidophora; this one I saw out the office window, perched on a pole where we had hung a hummingbird feeder, and stalked it for a nice series of photos. It flew a few times and hovered nearby but kept returning to the pole. The dark wings with pale windows was a pattern I do not remember seeing on a member of this genus before. I like the undulating dark veins through the pale window too.
