Brett and I stopped by City Park in downtown Denver before heading on to our next stop after visiting Red Rock Amphitheater. Right when we got out of the car I noticed the plants were covered in the these butterflies. There were hundreds of them. We must have been there during a big migration. I rarely see Painted Lady butterflies around my home so I took a ton of pictures of them.
There were lots of bees as well as a few monarch butterflies in the mix.
You can always find a carolina wren at the nature center.
Little critters buzzing around the flowers near the feeders at the nature center.
A bunny hops by.
I made a new friend sitting on the boardwalk waiting for the hummingbirds to show up.
A few four-legged critters walked by with their two-legged critters.
Some type of moth cocoon.
You see lots of interesting things waiting around for a hummingbird to show up. The firebushes around the nature center at Lettuce Lake Park usually has them buzzing around this time of year. After an hour, I had only seen 2 of them quickly going by and I only got blurry pictures. It was just too hot in August to sit around any longer so I went home for lunch.
