Mostly a blog about my miniatures. I sometimes get sidetracked.
Don't forget to poke the photos to enlarge!

Real Life in Arizona...
This morning we went out to the Arizona Sonora Desert Museum with April and Amare. This is theview from one of the lookout towers. We live about 30 minutes to the left of the photo...This kind of view is why we love Tucson...Amare was out of his stroller and walked most of the paths that we covered and some of them he went up and down a couple of times if they were on a slant.
He was still running at the end....Even when the rest of us were kind of dragging along behind.
I got a lot of photos, but I only included a few that I have seen in the wild.
Yup. That's a rattlesnake. Isn't he cute?
See the track at the front of the photo? That's where he has been...He's a sidewinder.
OK...You don't like snakes. How about something cute and fuzzy. I could only catch the tarantula going the other way. Sorry about that. He really is cute if he is facing you.
I did manage to find a miniature scene in the bug room. The Blue Death Feigning Beetles have their very own cemetery. You can see them in the corners and the middle of the front edge. They pretend to be dead so that other creatures won't kill them....I guess they are pretty smart...Although you couldn't prove it by me that they aren't really dead...
And of course a blog on Arizona wouldn't be complete without a roadrunner. A second after I clicked this photo he was gone. Literally. He is very fast. You know....Like the one in the cartoon...Beep, Beep! I was really fortunate to get the shot.
Last, but not least, we have have an example of the Witchus-Irritatus... No...She didn't get to go with us. So she is pouting and pretending to be busy crocheting....I got the afghan that far along before we left, but she would have you think that she did all the work. That's one of the habits of her particular species...Prevaricating the truth...
I am going now to work on the afghan or...take a nap. It was a long walk...
