My last stop before heading home was a small city park in Lamont. There weren't many birds, but it was the perfect spot for a sandwich and a potty break.
April was not the month for the tens of thousands of Hummingbirds that migrate through the area each year. I did find some migrants, though.
There were several Monarch Butterflies in the garden.
They are "capable of flying 2,000 miles from Canada to Mexico and back again to the Southern US" per my field guide. Wow.
So many shades of orange are in these flowers and butterflies, I think I have the perfect post to link up with Orange You Glad It's Friday.
