Butterflies and birds...

... at the Arizona-Sonora Desert Museum yesterday:

Queen butterfly on Greg's mist.

Painted lady butterfly on purple lantana.

Queen butterfly on jojoba.

Sulphur butterfly on scarlet monkeyflower.

Broad-billed hummingbird in the hummingbird aviary.

Parrot native to tropical canyons of southern Sonora, Mexico.

Western tanager tempted by the fruits of another....

Hybrid black-headed grosbeak, in the museum's stream-lined aviary.

Hooded oriole among the aviary's filtered canopy.
