Dos Mariposas

Two mariposas and a little sunshine today. My housekeeper pointed out the Monarch (Monarca) in the backyard just a few minutes ago. I don't see many here and I guess this is not one of the Canada to Mexico migrators because it's way past season.

The one below she calls a mariposa nocturna (of the night) and I've seen 3-4 different types of these. Obviously a moth and this guy was on his last legs (on the ground) ... but that's where I see most of them. I'll have to Google to see if I can find something on their life cycle.

The construction of the house finished in April 2011 and I'm pretty much settled in. As of March 2014 I'm in preparation for rain mode for this coming summer. That includes sealing and painting things and dealing with drainage issues from last year.
