Gauva Skipper Butterfly

These pictures were taken on 26th November at the Bentsen Palm Village RV Resort, Mission, Texas. This butterfly is known mainly in South America but does come as far north as the Rio Grande Valley in southern Texas. Although the bottom picture shows him to be a metalic blue because of the way the light was shining on his wings, he normally appears almost black with a hint of metallic blue as shown in the upper picture.
