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.
