Alfafa Sulphurs still out
Yesterday, Truman and I were enjoying a nice late morning walk out at the Yolo Bypass. While walking by a farmer's field of alfalfa, I was surprised to see two alfalfa sulphurs. They were both bright yellow males (?) flying about in a "stop and go" manner. Seems like thngs are flying later into the winter around here.
I work in the wildlife protection field. Mainly endangered species. My favorite endangered species are the California tiger salamander, Queen Alexandre's birdwing butterfly and the Ohlone tiger beetle.
