Butterflies, Painted Lady Butterfly, Sabino Canyon Recreation Area
Painted Lady Butterfly On A Rock — Image by kenne
This time of year I spend more time hiking on Mt. Lemmon that I do doing nature walking in Sabino Canyon. The exception was yesterday’s SCVN Lizard Walk. During the walk, which I will be posting on later, we saw a few butterflies. Currently, there are naturalists doing butterfly counts. I haven’t seen a report on the numbers, but from my observation trying to photograph them, the numbers are low.
The above image of a painted lady is one of the few butterflies I saw, at least that stopped for a moment. Maybe I would have seem more if I had been looking for butterflies rather than lizards.
