National Butterfly Center, Mission TX

This morning, before it got too hot, Skip and I went to the National Butterfly Center in Mission, TX. It's about 20 minutes away from our hotel in McAllen. The other two times we've visited there it's been stinking hot so it was really nice that it was cooler.
