As the title implies, we're up to our ears in... life. Between wrangling pups, pup-sitting for others, work, school, work and more work, we've managed to get a few photos worth sharing:
Family portrait: Matt, Nauga, Heidi and Anakin. Awww.
A Black Witch moth on the back wall while blacklighting.
The Chihuahua named Little.
Pepsis wasp. Oh yes, there's an Entomology class afoot this summer!
Recent bug life: Lyside Sulphur, Eyed Elater and an Opuntia Beetle (the 'longhorn')
The reason you don't go the speed limit out here. Ever. This was taken at 6:40 - long before dusk!
...and, FINALLY, our first dung beetles of the season. It only took until mid July to see them at Post Park. Still no sign of them in town. Maybe after a few real rains?
