Greetings from the Safeway Ditch

Yesterday afternoon during peak heat I explored around the ditch that runs in front of Safeway and was greeted by a Checkered Clerid Beetle on a Daisy.  There were many items of interest which I'll post during the day today, not the least of which was the Hooker's Evening Primrose which blooms in the morning and is shriveled up and pathetic looking in the evening.  All my field guides say it blooms in the evening which is what one would expect with a name like that.  But all the ones I've seen in the Quincy area for the past several years bloom in the morning and are closed up by noon.
More to come later this morning.
