Common mestra butterfly

Common Mestra Butterfly 1652

When I was at the Doeskin Ranch in Burnet County on November 18th I saw this butterfly. Later I figured out from a butterfly guide that it was Mestra amomyne, called the common mestra, even though it wasn’t common to me—but that’s hardly surprising, given that I don’t know much about butterflies. I suspect they know even less about me.
