Monarch Butterfly Photograph:

This is a photo of a Monarch Butterfly on a Pride of Madera Plant taken north of San Simeon at the Ragged Point Inn and Resort Hotel.
Great numbers of Monarch Butterflies are attracted to the ornamental flower gardens around the Ragged Point Inn Ocean View Resort and Ragged Point Inn Restaurant and it is delightful the way they will fill the air fluttering all around you; there are yearly migrations of the butterflies that start arriving to the resort in the early fall.



This photograph shows an Annas Hummingbird at Ragged Point sipping on the nectar of one of Ragged Point Inn's many Mexican Sages. The ornamental flower gardens at the Ragged Point Inn and Resort Hotel support a large population of humming birds as well as butterflies which are all quite used to people watching and therefore easy to photograph; a wild honey bee can also be seen lunching too.

Humming Bird Photo:
A photograph of an Annas' Humming Bird on a Mexican Sage Flower taken north of San Simeon at Ragged Point.

These unique and fascinating little jewels are the smallest birds in the world. They fly from flower to flower devouring nectar and an occasional insect with their specially designed needle like bills. The speed of their wings is so fast that they appear blurred and they can even hover and fly backwards. The only humming birds seen at Ragged Point during the winter are Anna's, a species of humming bird that is a local non-migratory resident of our coast. When the weather warms another species, Allen's Hummingbird migrates from its' winter home in Northern Mexico to the California Coast to breed. Humming birds are very territorial, you will see many a fierce looking battle over a prize flowering plant but the confrontations are actually all show.
