Bugs in the Garden
I took the above photo on October 2nd at the Desert Botanical Garden. I noticed that there was something on the flower besides the butterfly when I took the photo but, I didn't realize it was such a large group of aphids.
I took this picture on October 26th on the very same plant. I'm sure the garden does not use chemicals to so they either introduced some ladybugs or they used a soap and water solution. Whatever they did, those aphids are all gone now.
