It might be helpful to know if the plant was growing along the roadside, in a flower garden or just in someone's yard. Thanks! 🙂

It was growing along a road but clearly the hotel’s Planting that I stayed at. The habitat was desert.

Ok, thanks...that info is helpful.  I'll see if I can figure out what it is. 🙂

Oh, was this in California or somewhere else?  Thanks again! 🙂

Just to clear things up, @IKLlandwasn't interested in the ID of that flower.  I asked about it because I hoped it might help me with an ID.  So if you're interested in a plant ID with a more complete set of photos, I'd be grateful for a look at https://www.inaturalist.org/observations/80478779

Yes, I understood that IKLland was not interested in an ID but inquiring minds need to know so I wanted to try and figure it out. Thanks for your link, I'll do some research later when I get a chance. I'll let you know if I come up with an ID. 🙂

Bluets are as annoying to id as empids and dandelions expect you need to have good pics of the genitals instead of waiting n hour for the bird to call or revising the entire genus and naming 1,000 new species that all need microscopic pictures of the the seeds and cells.

1. Mourning Cloak.  Yes, it's a common species, but it posed.

2. The female Pale Snaketails were out in force today.  Here are two views of one of them.

3. Miscellaneous robber fly for you miscellaneous robber fans.

4. Toad bug, Gelastocoridae.  Actually this is a pair.  They can hop like toads too.

5. In case you can't see that, here's another pair.  I admit my pictures aren't quite in focus.
