Butterflies Galore...


I took the kids hiking yesterday. We went up Slate Canyon until we were out of the smog. I don't know the elevation, however, I had to take lots of stops for my lungs and heart.

We hiked the creek along this path about one month ago and the water was flowing. It must have been snow run off because it's a dry creek bed now. As we climbed, we discovered a natural spring.

At this spring, the water was flowing across the walking path and there were butterflies of all types dipping into the water. Honey bees and Wasps were buzzing all around.

We caught a number of butterflies and kept four special colored ones. Now to identify.
