|Not really. I just wanted an excuse to use this.|
Decent news, anyway: My gallery exhibit, though it opened in 5,000,000-degree heat, saw a good handful of visitors, including many of you, which makes me super-giddy-happy. Even better, folks are asking questions about my photos, and even better than THAT, they're questions I can answer and whose answers interest people. Selling a handful of photos + geeking out about spiders, dragonflies, and camera equipment = good times.
You can still come! The photos are up all through July and August at Boyce Thompson Arboretum. If you see something you like, but you'd like it in a different size, contact me, and we can definitely make it happen.
If you do go, check out the events first: It's hot, but the arboretum's got a few cool ones lined up. Try July 9. If you don't want to move much in the heat (it's cooling all the way down to the low 100s, maybe, but it's not quite sweater weather yet), they have a bird sit coming up, rather than the usual bird walk. Sit in the Demonstration Garden, and let the birds come to you. There has been a yellow-breasted chat there for some time, they're sure to have some Lucy's and yellow warblers, and there's sure to be a bunch of others I'm not thinking of at the moment. It's from 6:30 a.m. to 9 a.m. Check it out.
On the same day, the ever-popular "Wild Man Phil" Rakoci is leading another Learn Your Lizards guided walk. The walks are always popular, and for good reason. The walk is at 8 a.m., so the heat won't be killing you quite yet.
And, if you're there, maybe check out some photos in the Visitor's Center. Just a suggestion. It's not like I'm going to drop any visual hints in this post.
