I was only gone two days, but was starting to get withdrawal symptoms already (agitation, rise in blood pressure, etc.) Got some watering done and looked for butterflies in the soapberry trees, which are starting to bloom nicely. No interesting butterflies. I especially am hoping to score a Soapberry Hairstreak this spring. For now, it's mostly red bugs.
We're all going up the mountain tomorrow. My friend, Teresa, will be joining us. I'll take photos. Maybe she can help me locate Lucifer Hummingbird nests.
