Some days just turn goofy. I saw a one-second wren, one-second brown thrasher, one-second hummer. That translates into there-and-then-not-there, no pictures. But seeing is nicer than not seeing.
Along the way it was possible to photograph another monarch chrysalis, a gorgeous differential grasshopper, the raccoon giving his (her?) tail some air, and an I-don't-know-what guy in a mask. Sometimes it's more interesting not to ask what's going on.
