I realized I didn't post here about the butterflies at Ragged Point. I sometimes forget to share photos here after editing them and planning to do just that. On my recent drive up Highway 1, I stopped at Ragged Point to take a nice driving break and take a few photos. I got out of my truck and immediately saw multitudes of Monarchs flying around the grounds. It was magical and completely unsuspected as I'd read nothing about Ragged Point before I set out that day.
Here's a little information I found online.
And here are some of the photos I took. I could've stayed much longer if I wasn't trying to get to Cambria for the sunset.
Now I understand the butterflies are staying the winter near Pismo Beach just south of here. Sounds like I need to take another drive!
P.S. The bird in yesterday's post seems to be in the Towhee family. We have quite a few California Towhees around here but this one looks a little different....possibly a Canyon Towhee? You can look them up and see what you think.

Baby, it's been cold outside. I know, not Iowa cold or Upstate New York cold, but cold still the same. Merry Winter!
