Only ever seen this weird bug once before, so I was pretty excited to see it again. So excited I audibly declared to all that the "standy-uppy" bug had appeared, and attempted to relate a passage from an old journal I remembered reading about its absurd posture... and quickly realized I only remembered that the passage existed, not what it contained. In an effort to prevent future such embarrassments, may I present http://biodiversitylibrary.org/page/3329998.
Alas, it did not stay around for many pics before bouncing away.
After Elizabeth got off work, we went to the Oakmont Park. This is such an AWESOME park with some great limestone areas... However, it was really really hot, so we didn't stay too long. :)
