ENV: Spectacular New Butterflies

It was quite the weekend in the Valley with two rather spectacular butterflies new to the U.S. being found. It's that time of year (until the first hard front hits anyway) and this year has boded well all along for just such occurrences. If the hard fronts hold off there's no telling what may show up.

Here is a swell video clip by Jeff Gordon of one of the new Leps, a One-spotted Prepona, at its discovery and before anyone knew what the heck it was (the other new Lep by the way was a Guatemalan or Forrer's Leafwing).
