Today was the day of butterflies! The rain held off for most of the day, so we took advantage of it. :) And with the power of iNaturalist, I observed lots of things besides the target taxa. :)
Bentsen Rio Grande Valley State Park was mighty neat.
Solitaria, sobre vegetación.
Found with another Ant climbing the portable. Looks like it and another ant was returning back into the metal works of it's portable where it may reside.
I have seen these little ant/wasp insects before, but I can't remember if I ever put a name on them...
I think they are a kind of ant, but I'm not totally positive...
New species for me, too bad I wasn't in a great position to photograph it. I would have put the box on it if I could.
ID based on discussion with a few people, and it favourably matches online images too.
