The chair may have moss growing on it, but Anubis doesn’t care. He’s still soaking up the sun.

Years ago I worked as a lab assistant at the Central Plains Center for Bioassessment at the Kansas Biological Survey and, along with some of the best gals and guys I’ve ever met, collected, preserved, and identified mayflies like this one (just not at this stage of its life). Even though I love what I do now (and wouldn’t trade it for the world), I still miss those days of fieldwork and camaraderie. I suppose there’s a metaphor in there somewhere!
It’s been a long time since I had the desire to go out and shoot. I didn’t want to bring my camera when Craig and I went to Kansas last month, but he convinced me to bring it “just in case.” I’m glad I did. I suppose I needed a few insects to inspire me again…..*ha!* I rarely see mayflies where I live, so this guy was a pleasant sight. Such bright yellow colors!

More photos from the hailstorm we just encountered in Wyoming. Looked like at least 1 or 2 inches of solid hail.
Almost six hours into the drive home and this pup can no longer keep his eyes open. Anubis also didn’t notice that I stopped petting him. So glad we have a bed in the back of the Transit!
Craig celebrates his birthday with a chocolate-covered red velvet cupcake—not an easy cupcake to find, either! (Thanks, Christy!)
It’s taken me years to figure out that the secret to two happy corgis on the Fourth of July is a bowl of bananas. They’re so focused on the bananas that they have ignored the crescendo of fireworks. Woot! Now if I had more bananas. …..
