Geographic location of the bug: Los Angeles, California
Time: 07:40 AM EDT
For over a week now, Daniel has been seeing 1000s of Painted Ladies flying throughout Los Angeles, including on the campus of Los Angeles City College. One neighbor sent Daniel an email inquiring: “Hundreds if not many more butterflies emerging from the trees in Red Hawk Canyon. Been going on all day. I tried to get some video of them but hard to discern against the trees and greenery all around. I think they’re Viceroys. They all seem to be heading West. Rene.” Another neighbor left a telephone message inquiry. Though he did not get any images of the flight, Daniel did manage to get this image of a Painted Lady nectaring on Baccharis in Glassell Park.
