Fall in the Desert

Swiss Chard

Orange Sulphur (I think)

Painted Lady

Our lantanas are filled with butterflies now, mostly Painted Ladies. I have never seen so many before at one time. This article might explain it.

I don’t like taking photos of butterflies with torn and tattered wings, too sad to know their lives are ending very soon, but it’s part of nature…

These photos were taken in our yard, the Desert Botanical Garden, and Dig It Gardens, my local urban nursery.

  1. Beautiful photographs, Candace!
    We had a lot of butterflies this year also, and what was especially nice was that we saw Monarch Butterflies again, after not seeing any for the last 2 or 3 years. Not sure why.
    I just love your little frog! Oh, my goodness, those eyes peeking at you.
    Have a wonderful week!
