Butterfly Mystery #2 Solved Quickly
During the Huntington Botanical Garden tour yesterday I made a picture of a butterfly, and posted the question "who knows this one?" to Facebook. Sure enough, trusty friends identified the species within a few hours. The Facebook Photo Gallery is here, and the species is a Gulf Fritillary - see the picture below. For those who wonder about the Mystery #1: it's on Facebook as well... a Western Tiger Swallowtail.
