The walking project continues however internet failure has prevented updates. This is a picture of a Maybug - something which does fly but if it lands on its back is doomed. Try to help it and it has Velcro like ‘arms’ that cling in a slightly creepy way. The are not beautiful but slightly curious and do only appear in May. This one was trying to get into the kitchen. I don’t know what they do after May- perhaps someone can enlighten me please. #stillwalking#silverfit#buglife#May
Did you know that you should make a wish when a ladybug, our natural predator, lands on you? Some believe that the number of spots predict the number of months it will take for your wish to come true. What's your wish? #FunFactFriday

This moth has been a companion at work today. The coin for scale is 25 millimeters diameter. #moth#buglife If you look closely, you will see little transparent windows in the wings, similar to sails on a sailboat.
As I sit here alone (Sorry Suka Solo tonight) in the tall grass contemplating what it all means as I am lucky enough to witness yet another gorgeous sunset on yet another day here in this place on Mother Earth; just another day on this spinning rock as we go around the sun. The many thoughts and perspectives it invokes within my mind let alone our collective humanity. As many have watched the sunset previously and are also concurrently watching one as I do; they must be contemplating a limitless multitude of concepts … intriguing ... sunsets are popular because they are reflective… No? Ahhhh reflection is fun together but nothing like when alone. The depth while alone is ... well quite simply deep! Haha Lol ... None of us, not one really has the answer ... none of us will ever really figure it out… we will still have to endeavor each day to survive, grow our understanding and put forth passionate effort to prosper; being ever ready for the next day to come. I think that’s the point; as my #manthread discussion group came to consensus: it’s just the human condition. The unknown, the inability to truly know the truth; our truth until an unknown unpredictable future. #hindsightistwenty Thus simply sitting with acceptance of this moment in time; peacefully enjoying the passing of the time is a perfectly good and lucky night for me. Yes like I said it’s a good night; I have lots of good days and nights! So many that I consider myself a truly lucky man ... but never a great one not until my girls come home. Never a day goes by that I don’t contemplate life with you two. I look forward to it with patient delight and hold faith in that moment in time. It will happen. I am always here and ready. In the meantime I continue to strive to live the life that makes me feel as the best father I can be. I am always and forever; here for you.
Today like many days was a strenuous long day doing what I love in the environment and climate that I love! #thesunisback I was immersed in an ecosystem that is so alive with life; it’s vibrancy is amazing. Especially since the rains the #buglife have come on strong, including swarms of the #flyingvampires . I observed so many things
