Last year in April I had two posts on this beautiful desert flower ( Click on the date to see posting — April 24, 2013, and April 28, 2014). This is the first time I have photographed an orange Mariposa.

It is an understatement to say this is an impressive flower. These two were spotted a couple hundred feet apart on the La Milagrosa Canyon Ridge, February 28, 2014. January and February being two of the warmest months on record in southern Arizona may account for the earlier blooming of this desert lily.
