When I’ve done my summer field work, it typically involves getting up early in the morning and driving out to a pond in the desert to collect giant water bug eggs. It’s the monsoon season, so the weather is wildly unpredictable, but it does make for some very gorgeous views:
I’ve lived in Arizona the majority of my life, but I never get tired of looking at saguaros. They’re just so darned stately! Really going to miss them when I move on.

the saguaros seem to me to be doing well in their habitat. seems like they are increasing their population. when i was a kid here in arizona in the 1950’s they were pretty much toppled over for construction, road construction, etc. we have come a long way! making saguaro wine is a “kick”. from the harvesting to the fermenting, but pay attention there is a “fine line” in it’s fermentation where it goes from wine to vinegar!
Ha ha! So it goes with most wines from what I’ve heard!
I enjoy your blog. I read another on insects that I thought you might appreciate. The Backyard Arthropod :http://somethingscrawlinginmyhair.com/2012/05/26/backswimmers/?utm_source=feedburner&utm_medium=email&utm_campaign=Feed%3A+SomethingsCrawlingInMyHair+
