Not much is going on this weekend. I had two good rides on Apache, and Sara helped me figure out the last thing I needed to keep progress going, which was shorter reins.
Other than that, I’ve been watching summer insects. I’m still trying to get better photos. Perhaps I should try the real camera again.
I did get some reasonable photos today, when looking at a friend’s garden.
As I uploaded them to iNaturalist, I was thoroughly entertained by the common names of the grasshoppers. They are so creative and grand. Here are some names:
Boopedon (my favorite)
Plains lubber grasshopper
Grizzly Spur-throat grasshopper
Two-striped slant-faced grasshopper
What cool names, huh? Maybe I’ll find some of these. And maybe someone will help me ID them.
