"Crescent Wings"...

The Pearl Crescent (Phyciodes tharos) butterfly has small white crescent moon on the underside of the fore wing, as seen in this photograph. Another identifier is each black-and-white banded antenna ends in an orange club or ball. Their wing span is about 1-1/4 inches.

"Abandoned Dress"


Inside the central hall closet of an abandoned homestead hangs this dress. Notice the design of the wallpaper. My great-grandfather helped build a nearby store for the ladies that lived in this house. As typical of the early 1900's, the largest room in this house was the kitchen.

Lafayette county, southwest Arkansas.
