Heat!

The butterflies love this heat, 86 degrees in the shade! In my small Monterey Park garden space around noon today, there were monarch, giant swallowtail, cabbage white, fiery skipper, marine blue, gulf fritillary, and painted lady. In Monrovia Canyon on Friday there were California sister and funereal duskywing. CA sisters have been very prolific in all canyons this year.

In our Sherman Oaks garden, the last of the Monarchs are emerging and floating about; we also spotted a Mourning Cloak (which always seem to come out with the heat) and an ever-present Cabbage White yesterday,
