The SouthEast Arizona Butterfly Association had a fairly successful
field trip on 2/26 considering the dry weather.  We concentrated on the
Finger Rock Canyon Trail at the north end of Alvernon in Tucson.
Doug Mullins was the leader.

Warning:  Be sure to read and obey all signage at the trailhead.  This
is part of the Putsch Ridge Wilderness Area and is a sensitive area.

Pipevine Swallowtail (Battus philenor)
