Snapshot: Flight

Spotted this week .. in a very prolific butterfly season, a Painted Lady butterfly in repose (in San Francisco, city of “Painted Ladies“, the name for its colorful, ornate Victorian homes.) This video shows the lifecycle of the Painted Lady butterfly.

Also seen: a busy female Anna’s hummingbird, enjoying the nectar of a Meyer Lemon tree in Mill Valley. This is a good general hummingbird site.

Happy gathering!

  1. Great photo of an Anna’s hummingbird in Mill Valley. Wish I could visit there. My sister lives in Mill Valley and haven’t seen her in years. How I would love to see the hummingbird and my sister.

  2. Beautiful! We have hatched painted lady butterflies from eggs we found on our parsley. So amazing to watch. Great hummingbird capture!
