Roy's Postcards: 1986/11/25


I went to the Natural History Museum with Daddy while Leonard went to his geology class at the Museum of Science and Industry. We saw many beautiful butterflies.

Postcard back:

(a & c) Sara Orange Tip (male and female)
Anthocaris sara Lucas
Is common in canyons of the foothills of Southern California as early as January continuing until June. The female sometimes are white but always have a yellow band at the tip of the wing.

(b) The Desert Orange Tip (female)
Anthocaris centhura
Is found only in the low hills of desert and semi-arid lands of Southern California in early spring.

Leonard's comments:

Now, which one of these butterflies is the one who mugged you?
