Brown Longtail Skipper

Brown Longtail Skipper
 Many people head out to the Rio Grande Valley in south Texas in search of rare birds that can not be seen most anywhere else in the United States. There are other things to see in south Texas that fall into the same category. The northern portion of the range of the brown longtail skipper extends up into south Texas. The range continues south Mexico, Central America and Argentina. Occasionally a rare siting of these butterflies occurs in south New Mexico, Arizona, or California.

Your photo certainly illustrates where this butterfly got its name! Lovely nature shot.

Your photos continue to amaze me. This is an awesome one. Love the butterfly perched up on top as if he is king of the world. genie
