Description

This is a terrible, out-of-focus pic of a Monarch, but it was a very curious moment: There was a modest concentration of Monarchs migrating through the Uvalde area this day. This particular Monarch, i.e. the one on the right, just landed on an available perch on this black willow tree. The "perch" was actually one of his fellow Monarchs which had been captured in the web of a big fat orb weaver spider. You can make out the earlier Monarch victim, rolled up in silk, and with some imagination, you can make out the orb weaver which was making a meal of that first Monarch. I didn't stick around to see if the 2nd Monarch met a similar fate!

This small mayfly (body length only 10-12mm) was on the wall of the HQ at the fish hatchery. Roger Rohrbeck (on BugGuide) identified it as a subimago male of this genus, a member of the "Small Minnow Mayflies" (Baetidae).

This was the common emperor flying on this private tract on this weekend. The most abundant Celtis on this tract of South Texas brush is C. pallida with much less C. reticulata and C. laevigata, primarily on fencerows.
