"I found this guy in the middle of the path at the La Brea Tar Pits, near the Page Museum. It wasn't flying and seemed to be stumbling quite a bit, so I scooped him up and placed him on the nearest flowering plant I could find before a group of joggers came by.

This was at 8:00 am on Jan. 10, 2015. The weather was pretty cool and it was just starting to rain." - Ranjit
