Sights of June 2014

July 01, 2014  •  Leave a Comment

In May I was very busy, I finished up my entomology class, was heavily involved in an insect study for the nature center, and wrapped up a major spring cleaning effort around my house.  This month was time for a break. In June, I wrapped up the insect study, caught my breath, and spent more time with family. No butterfly count. No desert trips. The photos I took are all local, many in my own yard, and some through my front window. My cats alert me to interesting birds and I keep my camera handy! June is such a fine month for butterflies and baby birds.
