Anza-Borrego Desert State Park
San Diego County, CA

Sunny, 77 degrees, light wind. Conditions are extremely dry. This area has received little to no rainfall the past calendar year. The Sonoran Blue count is conservative as males are on constant patrol looking for the still non-existent females. Nectar source is scarce. One blue seen but not positively ID’d.
