While it’s nowhere near the superbloom that’s been gracing areas of southern California, the Central Valley is seeing the first signs of local wildflowers bringing with them the color of spring.

A painted lady butterfly lands on a wild radish flower along the banks of the Calaveras River near Pacific Avenue in Stockton. The butterflies, which migrate from Mexico to the Pacific Northwest for breeding, have been spotted in record numbers due to, in part, the number of many super blooms created by this year’s abundant rains. Indeed, many could be found in this location alone.[CLIFFORD OTO/THE RECORD]
