This Snout butterfly was feeding on white eupatorium flowers. It has been 10 years since I have seen one at Gateway. They are uncommon in Howard County since their caterpillars feed on Hackberry leaves and Hackberry trees are rare in this county. Snouts are named for their long snoutlike palps or facial area. Also at Gateway on September 6 were a Variegated Fritillary and two newly emerged Gray Hairstreaks. A closeup of one of the Gray Hairstreaks is the last photo.
