We recently saw the very rare Gray Cracker butterfly. The last sighting in Texas was in Starr County decades ago.You'll appreciate the butterfly gardens throughout the park. Before that, we sighted a rare Erato Heliconian butterfly. Mission Texas is considered the butterfly capitol of South Texas. The annual butterfly festival is Nov. 2-5. But you will see rare and tropical butterflies all year at Oleander Acres. Join us.
For those of you who are not butterfly specialists but who enjoy watching butterflies and nature, the Erato Heliconian or Red Postman is more commonly known as the Red Passion Flower Butterfly or the Crimson Patched Long Wing.
Oleander Acres RV Resort owner Ed Welliver and his daughter Salome have sharp eyes! Of course we knew that Ed, a former fighter pilot with the USAF doesn't miss a thing. Sharp eyes must run in the family at this family-run RV park.
They are both avid bird and butterfly watchers. At Oleander Acres, there are plenty of wild birds and butterflies attracted to the native plants that are so lovingly grown there.
