National Butterfly Center - NABA

The forecast predicted a sunny afternoon, so we waited until noon to drive to the National Butterfly Center south of Mission, which is only a mile away from Bensten State Park. We both scoped out the front gardens and then Gunnar left for Bensten. I continued to search for butterflies but the sun was very late showing up.
