Hi Robert: I have been thinking about this image all day trying to decide how to compliment you, again, for the wonderful and artistic work you produce. We all keep telling you things like wonderful, beautiful, etc. and you know that we all mean it. So, I am not going to do all that, but I also want you to know I think you are one of the most talented people that I have met. Congratulations on the fabulous entries that you share with all of us. My best to you, Merna

Thank you all so much for your kind words. They are greatly appreciated.

Liz ... I have met the guys who run BugGuide. They had a booth at a Bug Fair held at the Los Angeles County Museum of Natural History.

By the way, this is the month that these beetles are out in Arizona, and parts of New Mexico and southern Utah.
