Eleven of us did the NABA Shreveport Butterfly Count Saturday, October 13.  It 
rained early in the morning and late in the day, but the sun came out for about 
four hours starting about 11 a.m.  The rest of the day was cloudy.  Not ideal 
conditions for the count, but that is what we had to work with.  The total 
number of species was rather low at 37 and the diversity was not high--there 
were seven species with only one individual butterfly recorded--but we had fun 
doing it.  The most species ever counted on this count was in 2012 when we 
recorded 54.
