Text from Mark Hengesbaugh: 
Yesterday (9/9/12) I took a walk with friend (and Sabino blog subscriber) Roger Rittmaster who was in town for the North American Butterfly Association's biennial meeting in Sierra Vista. Roger ID'ed 12 species of butterflies all nectaring on the Dam Bridge button bush at the same time.
In addition to the Fiery Skipper, Acacia Skipper and Southern Dogface (with honeybee) pictured, we also saw on that button bush: Queen, Bordered Patch, Orange Skipperling, American Lady, Painted Lady, Pipevine Swallowtail, Orange Sulfur, Eufala Skipper, Funereal Duskywing.
