Wow, that’s quite an outing!

My family can’t take me outside without expecting to spend an extra hour flipping rocks and logs for critters. I was really happy to find the scorpion, I found one but it bolted down a hole before I could get a picture, the second was just a few rocks away without a bolt hole.
