How did I almost miss THIS?
International Rock Flipping Day!
I only found out about this about an hour ago. My first thought was, "Dang! Missed it by that much!"
But wait! What's stopping me, aside from the lateness of the hour and 104-degree(!) heat, from going outside and turning over a rock? Nothing, that's what! And conveniently, just steps away from my front door is a rock I brought home from a vacation trip several years ago.
There's my rock. I didn't even bother to remove the trashy little empty plant-pot first.
And, Eureka! A spider guarding her egg sac.
Hopefully if they have this next year, I'll be better prepared, and maybe go somewhere that has a chance to find something a little more unusual. But hey, I'm in!
