Made a quick stop at Gover Beach because I had to rush to try to see some monarchs at a nearby butterfly grove.
So where are the pictures of softly floating butterflies? 没有！A local guy walking in the area said they haven't been coming like they used to--before their pretty orange wings would coat the whole grove of trees. He said their main diet of milkweed is frequently bush hogged by local farmers. I was a little depressed at this news. Poor butterflies. Let 'em eat milkweed!
Seriously it was a bummer. I might have gotten a little teary because I really wanted to see them, but the nice gentleman showed me the way to Pismo beach a short walk away. Again, the sun is setting when I get to the good spots...but it does result in the warmest pictures and then driving in the dark.
|What's that? Two pictures of the same thing at different exposures? You're welcome.|
|Did someone set this up as an alter or something? Curious. I saw similar formations on other beaches.|
