Old and new

Marty's been taking photos from his perch at home this month. (You won't see Lantana like this in the canyon.)

Marty says: An old Queen. The color in butterfly wings fades with age.
Anne says: Better an old queen, than no queen at all. (You'll be prying that scepter out of my cold hands, that's for sure : -)

This is a Mexican Fritillary, a new butterfly for us. Their range is usually south of the border. Fred says they are starting to appear in southern AZ more frequently, though. Global warming, baby!
