Here are some of the different cactus we see here in Arizona.
Here is a Common Checkered Skipper that I saw last year. One of the most common skippers, they can be found along roadsides, agricultural fields, and in desert washes throughout most of North America in various regions and elevations. The host plants are mallows, mostly Globemallows.
Here is a Lesser Goldfinch eating breakfast in the sunflowers.
Enjoying an end of summer walk.
