Dusk Challenge

The plant only opens at dusk and the flowers only seem to last a day, shrivelling up so that new buds can take their place. Almost as soon as they open the Sphynix moth comes to visit. I wish I'd had a better lighting setup, but while camping at Cimmeron State Park in New Mexico, I didn't know I'd need it.

Given all my recent lighting regrets, I think my camera equipment might well outweigh my clothing on my next trip.

Are you going to the World Science Fiction Convention this weekend? Daniel Abraham is reading (among, of course, many, many others)

LaMaia!!! Wow, I hadn't even realized it was going on. Just shows how out of touch I've been. I don't think we can afford it, much as I'd love to go. We just got back from a convention in Vegas and I did a one-day-er the following weekend, followed up by camping in NM. I feel so... southwestern.

If you're coming though, I'd love to grab a meal, show you the insanities that are my children and all that. We can drive downtown so you won't miss too much of the convention. :)
