Red Bordered Pixie

On the last NABA field trip, I got a good look at this Pixie, which hung around for awhile. To me, it looks more like it has dots than borders, but I guess it sort of has a border at the trailing edge of the hind wing. The caterpillar feed on plants in the pea family. It normally occurs from Panama to Mexico and in some of the most southern areas of the US, like the Lower Rio Grand Valley in Texas.
