Flowerageddon and Butterflyageddon in California 2019

 

We are having 2 wonderful acts of nature in California right now, a Super Bloom of wildflowers in many areas, particularly in the California desert, due to all the rain, and an amazing migration of Painted Lady butterflies heading north from Mexico over the last 3 days.

 

There are some fabulous photos of the wildflowers online - you can find great locations to view them in this Conde Naste Traveler article - but I haven't dared to venture out to the desert to see them due to the massive crowds and traffic jams in areas that are not equipped to handle so many people and cars.

 

Painted Lady butterfly in Carlsbad

 

The Painted Lady butterflies are relatively small and move rather quickly, and I've tried multiple times to grab a photo but no real luck so far (that's the best I have so far, and it's terrible!), especially since they don't seem to land but are intent on their flying mission.  I was out driving around earlier - there were more butterflies today than in the last 2 days - and it's a bit disconcerting to be cruising down the road with swarms of butterflies flying at your car.

 

They say there are millions of them, and I believe it since they have been flying through for 3 days pretty much non-stop. Supposedly this is the largest swarm since 2005.
