Bugs and Ice

The desert southwest has had morning low temperatures dipping below freezing and is a bit cold for us desert dwellers.  For someone living “up north”, slightly below freezing isn’t that cold, but we aren’t accustomed to cold.  Heat, on the other hand–I’ve been running when it’s 110F/43C and  had lots of company on the trail.

The “bug” was probably 3 inches/7cm long from head to tail and I was kind of surprised to see it out and about.  Desert bugs don’t like the cold either.

If you look closely at the top right area of the image…that’s ice floating atop the water at the spring….at 2pm….

Bugy, it’s cold outside.
