We had one of these sit on an agave in our back yard for about three hours yesterday afternoon. Beautiful looking creatures.

Last seven days were busy here. New classes to prepare and other stuff left little time for blogging and suchlike. Don’t know if things are going to improve next week.

ASU’s football season has started with two wins against NAU and Stanford leading to a #15 ranking. Last night’s 41-17 win over Stanford was satisfying. Up next is UNLV before the big home game against #2 Georgia. And things don’t get easier after that – three more ranked teams (Cal, USC and Oregon) in a row.

OK, back to class prep!
