cody bear's friends

all foresty and stuff

buzzy and r have come and gone, leaving two depressed dogs and one very restless goodbear.  we had so much fun and now i need to find something to keep me busy.

now, keep in mind….our fun isn’t everyone’s fun.  for instance, friday night we went out to the forest and set up camp with a bright light on a generator to try to get as many weird insects as possible to join our bbq.

just like old times.  this long horned beetle was a show stopper:

on the menu: brats, garden burgers, beefburgers, pasta salad, chips and salsa and guacamole, sw bean salad, and r made a cake over the campfire!  all t he salads and dips were home made.  oh, and there were beers, also. (duh! of course there were beers!)

it was a beautiful night with some great scientists, some amazing photographers and one bad ass cop.  oh, and me.

Nick Nolte from “48 HRS”? Axel Foley? Martin Riggs? Dirty Harry?

I’m sure I’m not the only one who would insist on including you in the “amazing photographer” category.

That lovely beetle is a whole lot bigger than those micromoths!

Cool, I’ve been waiting for a post about this. I’m envious you get to go on such groovy field trips! Reminds me of when I was in Costa Rica and a biology professor from Virgina (or, North Carolina, I forgot now and it doesn’t matter) was there w/ a class of biology students. They were out every night w/ lights, nets & cameras and gloves & bags. I saw every bat he brought back to camp (among others) for show ‘n tell and learned SO much about the native creatures.
