This praying mantis was on my screen door. I think the praying mantis is one of the neatest insects in nature.

When we got this car I didn't think much of it since it's a Playmobil brand car. My wife checked it out on Ebay and it turns out it is actually a fairly valuable car since only 70 some sets were ever made and released with it.

I was surprised to see that someone in one of the other condo buildings has huge Elephant Ear plants outside on their patio.... Fascinating, those huge leaves!

No doubt many of you have read about all the wildfires raging out here in the western US. My home town of Ashland, Oregon has largely escaped the fires (so far), but not the oppressive smoke. As I type this, the PM2.5 air quality measurement stands at 429, which is more than halfway into the "Hazardous" zone. And the two towns just to the north of us, Talent and Phoenix, have been pretty much wiped off the map. More than 600 homes are gone, and 100 businesses. Right now there's no end in sight. There's no rain the forecast, and we might be in this until October. I cannot wait for 2020 to be over.

I'm with you on that David.
We've been under a smoke cloud for three days now from a fire burning up near my sister-in-law's place in Monrovia.
This is not fun people.
It is hot and humid and the air stinks.

So sad for the ecology and economy of the US Pacific coast. Especially the lives directly impacted. :(
The smoke's effect has reached us in Phoenix, AZ. Haze yellowish sky, blood-orange Sun and significantly lowered temperatures for Sept.
Good luck and stay safe Dave.

It doesn't compare of course, but the smoke has even been carried all the way up here to North Dakota. Mostly it makes a light haze across the sky, and nice sunsets.

Stay safe.
