Reflections on conservation, butterflies, and ecology in the nation's heartland

What a gorgeous photo. . . . What elevation is this place at (asking really if the heat index is like most of AZ, or maybe higher so as cool as the photo looks). Your work seems fascinating. I have a niece working with endangered plant life in Borneo! Lonely but dedicated she is. Your new blog, in my opinion, is going to quite fascinating. Thanks for sharing your life work. / Mark - NW, partner of Rodger ps: We maintain a NW garden diary too, so already are tuned into wildlife. We've been feeding birds for years and you're right not too many butterflies, but a few come to our Butterfly Bushes (there are many).
Hey Mark,Thanks for stopping by and for the kind words. The elevation in the photo is fairly high, around 4000'. When I visit, it's usually cooler than Rio Rico, which is cooler than Tucson. Even in August, it has typically been no higher than the upper 80's. I was there in March once and there was even wet snow falling.
