If you look carefully in some of the cells in the background you will notice a nectar of a green shade. Right after our last rainy period, this nectar, that looks to be an almost fluorescent green shade showed up and seems to have brought in a short but nice flow. I understand that its source is most likely our creosote bush (Larrea divaricata or tridentata).
