Milk Weed Portrait

Milk Weed, from bud to flower, posing nicely in the evening sunlight.

Everywhere we look on our daily walk milk weed is springing forth. Most plants have buds just waiting to burst into flower while a few have started their blooms. We all know milkweed is an important flower for the Monarch Butterfly but given its abundance it helps sustain many pollinators both large and small.

Summer is truly upon us…on your mark, get set….go.

Lark Sparrow

A male Lark Sparrow pokes about in the short desert grasses of Western Colorado. A unique sparrow and thankfully one that is easy to identify correctly. If you have any good tips or a process you follow to identify sparrows they would sure be welcome.
