Getting work caught up in town. As much as possible. Assessed the butterflies and odonates here too. Saw a nice Western Pygmy-Blue butterfly...
A gorgeous moth that my friend, Heidi Trudell, identified as a Clouded Crimson (Schinia guarae).
I usually don't even photograph moths, but that one was so pretty. I wish I had tried for a better photo.
Last is a photo of mating bees of some species. I had never seen bees mating before. Actually, never even thought about bees mating before.
UPDATE: These "bees" have been identified as robber flies that mimic bees (Laphria macquarti). I think it should be one word, like dragonflies, butterflies, robberflies.
