Teetering on endangerment, this Monarch fed in this purple lanatana for 20 minutes, maybe longer. The flower is more purpose than pink in real life.
We used to see several per year. But it’s rare now. Counters report that Monarchs are down 86% from last year. Last year.
People have the power
I did not get a great photo, but the concert was fantastic.
The historic Fillmore has no seating in the auditorium. Just wooden floor. Perfect for PS as this is performance art with audience participation encouraged.
Photo shows that there are Opera boxes on the second level. Never been there.
Both PS and long-time (’73) band mate, Lenny Kaye are 72. She brought down the house.

Crazy to see this beautiful tree blooming in early January.
Not sure, but I suspect that it is an early blooming ornamental plum.
