Ground Beetle Crossing the Road

Just one photo today – I was walking home this morning and noticed an introduced ground beetle (Carabus nemoralis) crossing the road.

Conditions were a bit breezy at times during the day, with occasional showers and some sunny breaks.

Coming out of the movie theater downtown this evening I could see a pink cloud over Bear Mountain in the east, and intensely pink skies to the northwest where the sun was setting. I later saw pictures posted on social media with rainbows and other vibrant colors from various places around town. It was one of those glorious summer sunsets we have from time to time. Had I been out a bit earlier, I probably would have tried to get somewhere to take pictures, but as it was, just tried to enjoy it while walking home.
