Bordered Patch

I saw a lot of wonderful butterflies while on NABA field trips in Texas. Here is a bordered patch. None of those in Berkeley! According to the Butterflies and Moths website, caterpillars eat plants in the sunflower family, including sunflowers, ragweed, crownbeard and cockleburs. This butterfly is common if parts of the southwestern US.
