San Antonio, Texas — San Antonio Botanical Garden

It was almost time to leave for the airport. I was standing in the formal gardens listening to some older women who were tending the flowers and complaining that the government was taking over the garden and everything was about to go downhill (amen!). I spotted this distinctive skipper resting on a leaf.

And that's it. It just rested there. I took this picture and moved on to other things. It may still be there, for all I know.
