Cooper Lake State Park, Coyote Run Trail
Delta County, TX

Surveyed from 11:30 am to 5:30 pm. Partly cloudy with temperature in the upper 80’s. Excited to see a Common Wood Nymph after not seeing one for several years, then I was really surprised to see 16 of them. There were Red-banded Hairstreaks everywhere. A lot of satyrs as well, however, I did not take the time to identify most of them.
