  •  no Mourning Cloaks here since 1984 (9+ / 0-)

    here in Satana Barbara there was a spectacular blush of them that took over a tree next door, webs and cocoons everywhere then nothing, not one since.


    wow, BillyBush that is odd, but doesn't it mean that not only was the weather variations way strange for us, it was deadly for the bugs..and back to the other insect du jour, the bees?

    The bees expand their populations to fit the weather and plants, but then odd freezes and blizzards mess with that, they have to eat their honey and combs or whatever the species stores...and can't replenish. My guess...seems obvious this year..and another detail element in too rapid climate change.

    Saw a nice Buckeye on the Carpinteria bluffs the other day, a little show off, he posed well and long for me.

    still the bug of the month was that dune fly, sliding on the dunes in the really high winds.

    This machine kills Fascists.
