St. Patrick's Day Butterflies

Saturday, March 17

Hey, I saw the St. Patrick's Day butterfly aka Bramble Hairstreak on St. Patrick's Day! Lucky me! Also saw Sonora Blue, Spring Azure, Sara Orangetip, Western Tiger Swallowtail, CA Dogface, Common Ringlet, Funereal Duskywing and a day-flying moth with black and white markings.

There was water in the stream but not along side the trail. The butterflies were taking nectar from the chickweed flowers. There were snakes and lizards hidden in the grass stalking the butterflies.

Evey Canyon is off Mt. BaldyRoad just north of San Antonio Dam.
