I am watering the back flowerbeds this afternoon. When I went to move the water I saw a Buckeye in the white roses. No camera! When I came back Buckeye was gone and little Gray Hairstreak had come! I went to the east side to see if Buckeye was over there and I saw a Butterfly Convention. There were 50 plus butterflies of all sorts of varieties in the zinnias! I gasped.
This is a West Coast Lady. Smaller than her cousin, Painted Lady.
As I snapped photos I saw a Hummingbird Moth! Oh my! Oh my! Oh my! Right here in the gardens!
I needed to come in and charge the battery for the camera. I took 400 photos!
