This butterfly was feeding on some yarrow flowers in a field, near a railroad track. This butterfly is similar to the more common Pearl crescent, but this one has more black in general, and has more distinct white on the fore wings. The butterflies eggs are laid in clusters on the undersides of leaves of the fogfruit host plants.
In a field, with many host plants, and nectar plants in the area. Fort Worth, Texas.
