Flagstaff Part Four-Critters
Besides Fungi, I also love to photograph butterflies, bugs and all critters, for that matter! Because of the lack of sun, Butterflies were scarce this trip but I was happy to see and photograph at least a few Fritillaries.
I spotted this one on the Viet Springs trail on what I think is Wheeler’s Thistle.
The following were also on the Viet Springs trail.
At Aspen Corner, there was a lot of critter activity. Most interesting to me were the Tachinid Flies.
There are several very attractive day-flying moths in Flagstaff who don’t mind a little rain.
My prize day-flying moth sighting was the White-lined Sphinx. It didn’t like the rain but I was lucky to have a few moments in the sun.
I visited an area I knew would have Sacred Datura and found several critters. Here are two:
Finally; here are two larger critters.
(Because of the rain, I only photographed using my Smartphone, Canon Powershot N and my Canon Powershot SX50. Yes…I would have liked a little more detail in a few of the images but considering I also had to hold an umbrella, the tradeoffs were worth it.)
Stay tuned for some fun stuff.
