Late Season Butterflies

Fall Butterflies

A trio of butterflies that aren’t supposed to be in New Mexico in November: Two western pygmy blues on the left and an acmon blue (I think) on top.


Tumbleweed Flowers

Pink Tumbleweed Flowers

I’ve lived in the desert southwest for well over three decades, and I never ever knew until this year that tumbleweeds have flowers. They’re teeny tiny, and of course you wouldn’t want to get too close to them because they’re very prickly. Turns out another name for them is Russian Thistle. As you might guess…
