I saw way more insects out there than ever before as well - house flies, moths, assorted winged things. Having a house fly appear in the RV on day 3 was just annoying.

We had dragonflies all week long buzzing around 4/H.
One night my kitty corner neighbors where raver fishing, and they caught a.....K9.
When leaving Sunday morning we saw the same K9 on J about 5:30.
What other people think about you is none of your business.

I saw a lot of dragonflies too. And wasps, someone in our area must have hauled a nest in on a trailer. I know we get them up in our trailer frame pretty often. Ick. And flies. WTF was that?
Some sunshine, some dust, a little paint and a tutu. Yeah.

Besides human animals, I saw lots of crows Tuesday morning after the burn. They seemed to be pecking at moopy food bits or something. A few spiders in my own van through out the week, and a dragonfly on or about Friday.
In dust we trust.

Due to the rain close to the opening?
Wasps will come from miles away if they catch the right food scent.
Odd. No bears to watch in the dump. Oh well, lets go across the road & pick blueberries.
... but don't harm the red dragon that frequents the area from time to time. He and I have an agreement.

Lots of dragonflies, a praying mantis, and moths were buzzing around our camp. Saw a few flies too, as well as some sort of crawling flat insects (not cockroaches, but looked vaguely similar)

this story was relayed to me by a guy at the sands, he camped with a fellow who brought a kitten to the burn. the kitten was so young, its eyes weren't even open, and they had to feed it via eye dropper. apparently one of their hitch hikers wasn't paying attention and fed the kitty out of a pee jug. kit died the next day.

I hope the hippie didn't let it to go to waste and finished the jug between himself and the guy that brought the kitten.
