We found a wonderful butterfly garden at Falcon Dam State Park. I took a whole bunch of pictures and then tried to ID them. I found a list made by another person from the day before which had very few of the butterflies I saw and lots I didn't. Here are a few pictures of my favorites:

|This is very common and is called the Two-Barred Blue Flasher|
We were very disappointed to not be able to visit Bentson-Rio Grand State Park and Santa Anna National Wildlife Refuge. Both of them were still flooded and may be flooded for a couple of more months. But we did enjoy views of the river near Bentson-Rio Grand State Park.
