Berkeley Street Photos 5/5/20

Photos taken along the streets of the North Berkeley Flatlands on May 5, 2020. All photos in this post and on the previous Berkeley and Albany Street photo posts were taken within a mile and a half of home. This is part of my continuing project during this “shelter at home” period.

The Pipevine Swallowtail photo (even though it isn’t very good) and its eggs are significant as they are on a Pipevine plant in front of our house. Even though there typically aren’t many Pipevine Swallowtails in our immediate neighborhood our plant does seem to very occasionally attract one.  This year it is even laying eggs. Both botanic gardens in Berkeley have many Pipevine plants and many  Pipevine butterflies. They are likely there right now but the gardens remained closed during the shutdown.
