Monkey lips

Photo by Gene Spesard 4/23/2014

Yes, there are monkeys in the canyon! Yellow Monkeys - well, Yellow Monkey Flowers, anyway! The genus name has changed (now Erythranthe guttata) since the 2nd edition of A Naturalist's Guide to Sabino Canyon was published in April 2012, but the information on page 98 is still true. This photo shows the hairy, reddish-spotted throat quite well!
A big monkey flower kiss to Joan Tedford for keeping up with the botanical name changes for Sabino Canyon plants.
