Plenty of activity on this warm afternoon; the flowers were popular.

The Little Wood-Satyr preferred the leaf litter.

I decided to take a short hike to check for caterpillars on the Antelope Horn milkweeds. No cats yet, but plenty of other guests:

Oak Hairstreaks,

Great pics!! All I have seen is one black bumblebee and one swallowtail so far. There's a buffet waiting for them.

I have a plum tree that gets literally covered in ladybugs and eggs and larva. I will definitely show pictures!!
