Mournful Duskywing
Erynnis tristis
The Mournful Duskywing (Erynnis tristis) occurs in the southwestern United States and Mexico. The two shots here were taken in Real Co., Texas, in May, 2003, with a Canon EOS 10D and EF 70-200mm F/2.8 L IS lens and 2X extender. There is a possibility that these two images are of a similar species known as Funereal Duskywing (E. funeralis), however, this is apparently difficult to establish from these images I have been told.
