Over the last three days we put a small pond in our back yard near the
bottom of Carr Canyon in the Huachucas.  The wet concrete attracted a
lot of butterflies - raising our yard list to 68 since we moved to this
house in June.
Interesting species added included: Rita Blue (Euphilotes rita), Mexican
Fritillary (Euptoieta hegesia), Theona Checkerspot (Thessalia theona),
and most interesting for us skipper lovers - Sheep Skipper (Atrynopsis
edwardsi (ovinia).
