Image of the Month - February 2016

April 03, 2016  •  Leave a Comment

When I see the first Sara Orange-tip butterfly of the year on Mount Diablo, I know that Spring is on the way.  Mitchell Canyon is a great place to find this species busily patrolling the trails and hillsides.  As is the case with many butterflies, they are difficult to photograph well, because they are always in motion. I photographed this Sara Orange-tip in White Canyon (a side canyon off Mitchell Canyon) on a Fiddleneck flower on February 27th.
