Zilker Botanical Gardens, Austin, TX
Travis County, TX

14:15-16:15 CST. Sunny, warm (77-79 deg F), wind 0-10 mph. Few flowers were blooming at Zilker (not surprising), but there was a nice variety of early winter butterflies (6 species). The light was especially difficult for the Gulf Fritillary photo.
