Tropical Greenstreak in the Lower Rio Grande Valley

Again there was excitement in the air, at the ‘Wall’ that forms the entrance to Retama Village in Mission, Texas. An uncommon butterfly, a hairstreak, was nectaring.

Many of you saw the crowd that surrounded this Tropical Greenstreak, in an earlier recent post. Some whispered that even though it was not 100% fresh, it was exciting to finally see one.

This Gossamerwing was very tiny. Once again I went in low and close with a Macro lens and risked who knows what? This Tropical Greenstreak did not flee while I was close to it. It stayed put, and I didn’t have to face the “Lords of Flatbush’s” wrath.

It can be dangerous shooting photographs in a crowd.

Two miles from Mexico, in the Lower Rio Grande Valley. Whoda thunk it?
