Tuesday 29 to 32 Rd


The stretch of bike trail between 29 and 32 Rd. has some nice views.

Clouds behind the Bookcliffs.

Beetle on the water's edge.
My guess is a red-femured milkweed borer,

Possibly Tetraopes femoratus?
Definitely Tetraopes sp

Grasshoppers were everywhere along the trail today.
We saw a very large green one on the Audubon Trail yesterday;
it was about twice the length of the one pictured here.

First wooly bear caterpillar I've seen since moving to Colorado.
Do you think it will be a long or a short winter?
