Nature’s Drones

The sign beats any holiday decoration. In a city where there are three seasons—early, mid, and late summer—flutterbies are welcome year `round. I have seen a fair number of Monarchs and the Cabbage variety this month. Even on this last day.

The sign adorns a lovely house, with manicured-plant yard and occasionally playing kids, at North and Monroe Avenues here in San Diego’s University Heights neighborhood. 

I captured the Featured Image using Leica Q at 1:13 p.m. PST. The accompanying photo is the uncropped original. Vitals: f/8, ISO 100, 1/100 sec, 28mm. Aperture was manually set, and left from an earlier street shoot of cats along Alabama near Adams Ave.
