This moth has it just about right:  stay very, very still and don’t do much of anything.  That seems to be the only way to deal with the relentless soaring temperatures these days.

We’ve been seeing a lot of these critters lately and they are so beautiful. This one was spotted right outside of the door leading to the den, better known as the cookie room.  Its lovely fall colors make me yearn, even more, for cooler temperatures!
