Snout nosed butterflies

If you are in the Austin area today (December 4, 2013) look up in the sky to see if you can see the thousands of butterflies.  These are snout nosed butterflies and we have a bunch of them flying around outside our office.

I noticed them on 71 just east of I-35 as I was returning from some fire ant field work.  They were everywhere in the sky all the way back to the office.  It was amazing and beautiful to see!
