Truckin' and pluckin'

The oasis is really weedy, which isn't unusual after monsoon rains. Sometimes it takes me until spring to get things back under control. One year rains came in early spring and by the time my birding groups arrived they could hardly walk anywhere without wading knee-deep in wildflowers/weeds. But I'm sure I'll get it under control. Just keep pluckin.' My allergies and bad back slow me down. Here is how many areas of my pathways look.

A nice fresh Common Buckeye...

Still lots of Spot-winged Gliders...

And here are some caterpillars that are up to no good. I forget what kind they are, but they denude things of leaves.
