November butterflies

We have not yet had a freeze in Austin, and we have some fall flowers after the recent rains. So we still have lots of butterflies. The most common are American snouts, which which I have uploaded photos of before. Here are some other species.

A gulf fritillary, Agraulis vanillae

This is a theona checkerspot, Chlosyne theona

A phaon crescent, Phyciodes phaon

Both the phaon and the checkerspot are flitting around in some small white aster flowers.
