8 mm beetle landed on my knee, so I took a photo. Looks like some sort of carpet beetle. Day was clear, sunny, and hot.

MATING SEQUENCE: 1) Males and females open and rapidly close their wings as what I interpret as a ready-to-mate signal. Male shown is on grass over shallow, swift-running creak about 40mm at deepest point. Ambient air temperature 32.2 C, skies clear and very sunny.

Hmmm.... seen in same area as indigo bunting. Is this just an odd angle of an indigo, or perhaps something else like a blue grosbeak?? Unfortunately, I believe this is the only photo I have of this individual.

I found the nest before I found the bird, and at first I thought it was a hummingbird's. But then the gnatcatcher hopped on into it! First of two gnatchatcher nests we saw on this walk. What a treat!
