"I live so far deeply inside of my head that if the phone rings- it feels terrifying and presumptuous and aggressive and rude to me. Every time my phone rings it is as if I am naked in a hot bath, deep in prayer and silence and somebody just flings open the bathroom door, walks right in, jumps…

"Generally, by the time you are real, most of your hair has been loved off, and your eyes drop out and you get loose in the joints and very shabby. But these things don’t matter at all, because once you are real you can’t be ugly, except to people who don’t understand."

What an awesome dispatch from American Guide Week.  The insects of Southwest Colorado reminds me a lot of our Insects of Southwest Utah post!

americanguide:

INSECTS OF SOUTHWEST COLORADO 

In all sections of the State are bugs and beetles, varying in size from the two-inch dark-shelled cockroach to the small round ladybird decked in her bright colors.  (…) 

Butterflies, moths, and flies of many colors and varieties occur throughout the State.  (…)  Lightning bugs hover over the prairie meadows, and Colorado’s dry sunny climate and abundance of flowers find favor with more than seven hundred kinds of bees.

—Colorado: A Guide to the Highest State (WPA, 1941)

A bug-eye level look at Colorado State insects for Field Assignment #2 - Flora and Fauna from Amadee Ricketts, your Guide to the West:

Southwest Colorado is a funny mix of high desert and mountains. With milder winters and fewer violent storms than the Front Range (east of the Rockies), it is home to an incredible variety of insects and spiders, though most of them aren’t as showy as these.

In summertime, bees and butterflies are everywhere, drawn to wildflowers and waterAnts and ant mimics, dragonflies, weevils, and sneaky little mosquitoes turn up where you least expect them. Flies and spiders stay around even after the first frost.

Amadee Ricketts is an At-Large Guide to the West. She’s worked as a cemetery groundskeeper, a shoeshine valet, and a bill collector. More recently, she’s been a children’s librarian in five states. She takes a lot of pictures and lives near Durango, CO. You can see her photos at textless.tumblr.com.
