Two crops of the same photo taken on a quick walk around the block. I really like the landscape crop showing the fiery skipper as it flies from one flower to the next...but after I cropped it, I noticed the bee also flying in the foreground of the original, and I just had to find a way to keep them both in the frame and still draw attention to them.

Realized this isn't iceplant. INat suggests it's in the Kleinia genus, but I'm not sure beyond that.

Managed to identify the not-iceplant. It's Blue Chalksticks, or Blue Chalk Stick. Either way, it's remarkably descriptive.

Posted it to iNat even though it's cultivated landscaping in hopes that the info will help both the AI and human identifiers.
