Gulf Fritilary Butterfly
Photo By Richard Ingram

  • Title: Gulf Fritilary Butterfly
  • State/Province/Region: Texas
  • Country: United States
  • Nearest Area: Dallas, Texas
  • Nearest Town: Cedar Hill
  • Brief Directions: South from Dallas, Texas on U.S. Hwy 67 to FM 1382 North. Turn right on Clark Rd to Mountain Creek Pkwy and turn left. About 3/4 mile to preserve, entrance on left. No admission fee, however a donation of $3.00 (three dollars) is requested to aide in maintaining the park.
  • Notes: There is a butterfly and hummingbird garden, and numerous nature trails. Early Spring and Fall are the best times to visit. Summers are typicaly hot, and generally unpleasant. If you plan to take the nature trails, bring plenty of water and energy bars. a Walking stick is suggested, as the trails, albiet well marked, are primitve and some of the terain is steep and rough, but the scenery is worth the trip.

    Very colorful capture David! I agree, it's a great place to visit/photograph. It's a shame that the "middle bridge" gave way. Would have been neat to work with the entire area. Still a fabulous...
