My Anna's are gone for the time being, but I have WAY too many rufous with
lots of fighting...I counted about ten this morning, and of course there is
lots of fighting going on. Three males, so far, and at least seven females
and fledglings.
I don't expect them to stick around too long, but as long as I have all
the croscosmia, and other wild flowers, I don't think they will leave for a
few days...
Also, with us being on 7 acres, I've seen butterflies I've not seen
before. An orange one, as well as one with black and blue, I never got all
the colors, they were really busy....

IF I'm fortunate to get any photos I will post, in case anyone can id them
for me. Of course the swallowtails are abundant...
