Master Blister Beetle

This is a beetle I found wandering (unhappily) around in the parking lot. I gave he/she/it/Master Blister Beetle a ride to the nearest shrub with a napkin. You can read all about them here.

And here's another view of the large archway fish tank at MGM Grand.

These are Desert Globemallow:

Mouse over pics for captions, and click them for larger versions.

This is the most beautiful time of year to be in the desert. The flowers are wonderful.

Yes, it was great to be back. I saw a couple more roadrunners, but unfortunately, never got a picture of one.
