Nature Notes and Signs of the Season - Arches National Park - Part 2
This is a continuation of a post where I shared photos from our road trip to the Arches National Park. You can click here if you want to see the other shots.
These are a few of the little creatures we saw in the desert. I think there was a lizard somewhere in the mix but I didn't get its picture.
This beetle is sometimes called the desert skunk beetle. When threatened it will raise up on its back legs to stick its derrière in the air. This is a warning to stay back. For protection, it can emit a bad smelling odor.
