I was surprised to see some tiger beetles last spring near a lake in southern Oregon. There was still snow on the ground about half an hour from the lake. The sun was shining on the shore and the kids and I had a lot of fun trying to catch the super fast beetles. I think it was March.


Yesterday I saw a ground beetle larva crawling across the ground in the backyard, a newly emerged solitary bee of some kind sunning itself and brushing its new wings with its back legs, a whitefly and a few ants. Not much else out here yet, but my son and I sat in the backyard and looked around for a while. We had a solid hour of sun and there was plenty to go around.
