Did I mention that I went on a trip to Big Bend National Park with my sister Umulu a couple of weeks ago? Well I did, and lordy, lordy, lordy, was that place beautiful. I'm kind of running late for a hot night out on the town right now, but here's a little teaser of some of the pics to come. Click to embiggen, and ask yourself one question: Just how badly did that spider want to get into the center of that flower that it was willing to cross a minefield of cactus spines? Apparently spiders are just like magpies. And my friend Penata. They love anything, just as long as it's bright and shiny.
