May Day, 2009 Trip

by admin on May.04, 2009, under Seasons

We left Mesa on May Day, 2009 for a quick trip up to the ranch.
For this trip, our main project was to touch up the trim paint where it had been peeled off by the masking tape removal.

We started out from Mesa at about 09:00 am, and arrived at the Ranch at about 1:00 pm.  The forecast was for rain all Saturday afternoon, so we thought we better get the paint touch up done on Friday.  We were able to finish the painting by about 6:00, and took the rest of the day off.

The next day, the rain did not materialize, and we just had a little cooler temperatures (about 65 degrees), and some wind.  In between our other projects, we installed a Game Camera in the meadow.

We didn’t capture any photos over the weekend, so we will check it again when we come up at the end of the month.

We did however, run into one of the millions of Dung Beetles that we see every year.  I don’t think we have posted any pictures of these guys yet, so here is one I shot while it was running away…

 
Dung Beetle

If you bother them in any way, they stop and stick their head down to the ground, and raise their rear end up at you.  I kind of suspect that they emit some noxious odor that animals don’t like, but I haven’t tested that out…
