Here are two photos to get you started, Brian, both taken in the Lower Rio =
Grande Valley on November 6. These are Western Pygmy Blues, which are the s=
mallest North American butterflies. They are a lot like regular butterflies=
, only smaller! The length of its body is about the radius (not the diamete=
r, the radius!) of a dime. On the second photo, you can see traces of the r=
ows of scales on its wing. The first time I saw one, I thought it was an ea=
rring or pin that someone had dropped! I enjoy looking for them, and trying=
to figure out how to take pictures of them: https://flic.kr/s/aHsmafAjPy =
