After seeing South Padre Island, I went to the opening of the new Visitors' Pavilion at the North American Butterfly Association's Butterfly Park in Mission, TX. They choose the end of October for this event because it is the best time of all. Butterflies were in abundance! South Texas is entirely different from Berkeley. The flowering plants were swarming with butterflies. And the baits were so thick with emperors that it looked like leaves had fallen on the grapes. It was like being in a well-populated butterfly house, but with no walls or ceiling. Truly an amazing experience!
