Cuckoo is calling.
An American Snout Butterfly, fun to see even when common, visits the summer Composite wildflowers. This is the only one I’ve seen a-wing this year: yet another species that seems to have been badly affected by something. Not by a lack of rain, I think at least that much can be safely said. Perhaps there will be a migration of them through here in the Autumn when the Burroweed is in bloom.
