lies:

Lines Written in the Days of Growing Darkness

Every year we have been
witness to it: how the
world descends
into a rich mash, in order that
it may resume.
And therefore
who would cry out

to the petals on the ground
to stay,
knowing, as we must,
how the vivacity of what was is married

to the vitality of what will be?
I don’t say
it’s easy, but
what else will do

if the love one claims to have for the world
be true?
So let us go on

though the sun be swinging east,
and the ponds be cold and black,
and the sweets of the year be doomed.

— Mary Oliver, from A Thousand Mornings

Rabbitbrush Leaf Beetle (Trirhabda nitidicollis)

These look very similar to the Coyote Brush Leaf Beetles (Trirhabda flavolimbata) that I see a lot around here.

Sometimes when I’m birdwatching…

Some clicking around on Bugguide.net leads me to think this is Ctenucha brunnea, a species of tiger moth. A bunch of them were fluttering next to the Baron Ranch Trail yesterday.
