Butterfly: July 19, 2021

This butterfly belongs to a group called Skippers, but I don’t feel knowledgable enough to say what kind.

Bonus insects: fly & aphid

At this scale, one can see how aphids are nearly microscopic!

Flies, September 29, 2020

There’s something about this plant that houseflies love. Maybe it’s like that plant at Huntington Gardens in Los Angeles that only blooms every ten years and smells like a rotting corpse. I don’t know the name of this plant but it is commonly found in people’s gardens in these parts. I don’t know why it’s popular as it isn’t much to look at.
