Probably like the 6th one with the blending of purples, oranges and reds best.
The clouds were on a bender at that point. Thanks, Brian.
Those skies are gorgeous captures!
Thanks, Gabriela. All the kitties send their love to you, Maya and Mr, Churchill.
My pleasure. We got the love. We are happy and we are sending you more ❤️🤗🌹
¡Gracias! Grazie! Merci!
De nada. De rien. My pleasure 😊
That June bug is not like the ones that used to drive us crazy during our break when working at the drive in theater! They were big and brown and sticky!
Those skies, though. Ridick. A beautiful ridick 🙂
Hi Dale. These are big, brown with stripes and sticky. They are like Velcro® when you toss them on someone’s shirt. They also make a chee Chee Chee noise. When Tristan was little, she had a concept of “blanky” as anything that felt velvety. Sometimes we would hear the Chee Chee Chee near Tristan and she would be sucking her thumb and “blankying” a June Bug.
I’m starting to wonder if our ugly brown ones had stripes I never noticed! Those buggers did stick to our disgusting polyester uniforms (gah… they were so gross – the bugs too 😉 )
I particularly like the sound of them frying on my father’s bug zapper – the took a long time to fry! Sorry, I’m so bad.
That is hilarious re your daughter.
I think our western version have stripes and your eastern version is plain old brown. I love June Bugs. They are fun to play with.
Plain old brown!
Gorgeous! The sky shots, not so much the June bug. Cool markings though. 😆
Thanks, Michele. It’s funny that we get June Bugs in July out here. We also get more wild skies as monsoon season begins.
They are behind schedule. 😆
Bring on the monsoons! 🌧⛈
I with you on “Bring on the monsoons!” We have had some hard rains here a couple of evenings. Other parts of the state have received enough rain to have major flooding from what I hear. There’s been enough rain, the conservancy is considering letting us irrigate one more time. In a normal year, I would have irrigated 10 times this week. I’ve irrigated only 3 times this year so far. Normally the acequias madres have water running in the from April 1st through the first week in November. This year the acequias madres have been dry more days than they have had water. We need lots of rain.
Glad to read you have had some rain. Hope more is on the way. We sure need it! Interesting info, Timothy – thank you for sharing. 😀
Is there irrigation in your area?
Not in my community but around the valley, yes.
Have you been to the Salton Sea? That was the result of an irrigation mishap.
Passed by it, but have not been to it. Interesting. Lack of foresight?
A break in a levee if I remember correctly filled the Salton Sea. Once a recreation area with lots of promise, it’s now a dying salt sea were people who drop out of society live. We visited Bombay Beach in 2019. I wrote a song for it. You can list to see the video and listen to the song at: https://wp.me/p1yQyy-4NF
Will give it a listen. Thanks.
Absolutely stunning sky shots. Our June bugs must be the same as Dale’s, brown and sticky (they grab on everything).
As I explained to Dale, these are big, brown with stripes and they are sticky. Like bug Velcro®. Thanks, Maj & Sher.
Cool photos! Those clouds are truly spectacular!

I have never seen that kind of June bug. What a remarkable camouflage. I love K.D. Lang’s take on skies which is exactly what I felt when I viewed your sky photos: “The sky is an infinite movie to me. I never get tired of looking at what’s happening up there.”
That’s a great quote, Rebecca. Our skies are definitely like a moving with lots of drama. Our June Bugs seem to be a bit different. Thanks.
Interesting bug and wow skies! Doesn’t he ever rest? Amazing blasts of color and texture!
The painter is especially busy this time of year with monsoon season upon us. No rest for the wicked sky painter. June bugs are fun. They will stick to most anything. Thanks, Marina.
Dear painter, I hope you don’t mind me enjoying your restless season!!!! 😉
H’s loving it, and is flattered that an artist of your caliber enjoys his work.
Awwww… he is making me blush but he knows he’s king! 😉
WOW. Awesome pics .
Thanks, Shey. Check your email. I sent pics of your tree.
I got them and they are lovely . Sent you a reply
I got it. I’m happy you like them.
You’re so kind, truly. I loved them
Your Rio Grande skies are so dramatic, so lovely, and you do a marvelous job of capturing them, Timothy. Liked the June bug too, and hearing about their Velcro abilities.
Thanks, Jet. If you haven’t played with June bugs, I think you would love them.
Ciao Timothy 🙂
Ciao Simona. How’s your Friday?
Così, così, ciao
I wish you a wonderful weekend molto meglio di così, così.
The sky pictures are gorgeous. The picture of the bug with the white stripes is very striking.
Happy to see your wonderful skies again! Your photos are stunning, Tim!
Thanks, Flo. I’m happy to see you back enjoying our skies.
Amazing! Those skies are beautiful!
You keep producing these amazing shots, Tim. Grrreat! Thanks.
Loving those skies Tim .. wonderful photos!
So, that’s what a June Bug looks like.
I’ve often heard them, but never seen one.
June bug over July skies… stunning!
I think the ones you would see in Toronto are solid brown. Thanks, Resa.
Yesterday I saw my First Lady bug in such a long time. Great pic Timothy.
That ladybug is a blessing. Thanks, Holly.
We have a lady bug farm in the Redlands. I wonder how they are doing . I haven’t seen many butterflies, yesterday one tiny white one flew by. They are blessings.
Butterflies are beautiful blessings. I’m seeing more butterflies.
It’s strange there us such an absence of them here with so many tropical flowers in bloom.
Some years we have lots and lots of butterflies and other years few. I haven’t seen as many this year, but we are really dry.
