Butterfly Valley Botanical Area
Here are some images from Butterfly Valley Botanical Area taken last Saturday. So much going on there biologically, someone needs to write a book that goes beyond identifying species. That book is great for its purpose, but the real thrills, to me, are watching things happen. Bugs pollinating, bugs eating bugs, or escaping being eaten, bird activity, illegal wood cutting, snakes, lichens growing very slowly, leopard lilies growing fast, tourists making funny comments, people getting lots trying to find the place, it's all very interesting.
