It's butterfly season in Tucson

I don't know much about butterflies, but I saw hundreds last weekend at the Arizona-Sonora Desert Museum, which has planted flowering bushes to attract them.

I think this is called blue mist, aka conoclinium coelestinum. There's a Southeast Arizona Butterfly Association, whose members report what they've spotted. A group identified 48 species on a recent trip to Sycamore Canyon near Nogales.
