I walk a lot in California. There is so much to take in and quite a bit to find a long the way (and there are tons of MMA places everywhere!). Here are a few photos from my travels although sadly, I did not find the guavas on a walk.
I found this monarch the other day on one of our walks. She seemed to be near the end of her days. She had a very slow flutter and seemed a bit confused. She was beautiful nonetheless and let me pick her up with a piece of bark and move her to a better area away from the traffic.
