Repost from @jtnpa - Black Witch Moth... Tropical in origin, this is the largest moth seen north of Mexico. Its formal name is Ascalapha odorata and its wingspan can exceed 7 inches. Not actually black it is more dark brown with zigzag lines. A number "9" or paisley shape on the forewing is a prime indicator. The females have a white stripe midway along the wing and are slighter lighter in color than the males. The Black Witch moth generally flies only at night. During the day you may see one under eaves, a carport or porch awning. The beginning of the rainy season in Mexico triggers a northern migration where they are often seen in the American southwest. They are frequently mistaken for bats as they are large and fly like bats. Black Witch moths have tympanic organs or ears that detect the echolocation signals generated by bats. This hearing helps them avoid real bats when both are flying at night. Because of the similarity there are many superstitions that have evolved around this moth. In Mexico they are called the mariposa de la muerte (butterfly of death) and were known to the Aztecs. It is said that when a person is sick and this moth enters the house the sick person dies. A variation from southern Texas says that death only occurs if the moth flies in and visits all four corners of the house. In parts of Mexico if one flies over someone's head the person will lose their hair. In Hawaii if a loved one has just died the moth is an embodiment of the person's soul returning to say goodbye. It’s Friday, hope you get outdoors and explore the amazing nature found in our National Park’s. #jtnpa #joshuatreenationalpark #joshuatreenps #nationalpark #blackwitchmoth #Ascalaphaodorata #nature #natureshots #allnatureshots #natureaddict #naturelovers #nature_seekers #nature_shooters #nature_brilliance #nature_photography #findyourpark #exploreresponsibly #optoutside #respectwildlife #tgif

8/13/18 - The Milky Way at the Hall of Horrors at Joshua Tree National Park. The Hall of Horrors got its name because of some slot canyons around the mountains of this area.The light painting of the mountain is from cars driving by the area. This was my last and final stop at Joshua Tree National Park for my Milky Way photo shoot. Thanking God for a wonderful, safe, and successful nighttime journey and photo shoot of the Milky Way at Joshua Tree National Park! 🌵⛰🌌📷 ============ SINGLE Exposure SOCIAL: instagram.com/christineanneho facebook.com/christineanneho Joshua Tree National Park - Hall of Horrors August 13, 2018 at 1:22 AM Nikon D810 Nikkor 14-24mm f/2.8 14mm at f/2.8 30 seconds exposure ISO 1000 Edited in Lightroom ============ #joshuatreenationalpark #joshuatreenps @joshuatreenps #JTNPphotocontest #joshuatree #hallofhorrors #MilkyWay #milkywaychasers #thegreatmilkywaychase #longexposure_shots #mountain #astrophotography #stars #lightpainting #onlyinsoutherncalifornia #theonlycalifornia #visitcalifornia #southerncali #nationalparklife #exploreresponsibly #optoutside #influenceartists #bestpicsaround #abc7eyewitness #cbsla #ktla #nbcla #nikond810 #nikkor1424mm #nikonnofilter #nikonlove
Cholla Cactus Garden (Joshua Tree National Park)
Probably the brightest shooting star/meteor I've ever seen last weekend in Joshua Tree and I am super happy that I was able to capture it! If you haven't been out there for a night you're missing out.

Sliding into the weekend like...🐍👀 Did you know? Joshua Tree National Park is home to two species of #sidewinders : the Mojave #desert sidewinder (Crotalus cerastes cerastes) and the Colorado desert sidewinder (Crotalus cerastes laterorepens). This unique style of locomotion helps them move on sandy slopes. #Reptiles are especially suited for life in the desert, requiring little water. If you ever come acorss a sidewinder or other wildlife in a park, remember to keep your distance and do not disturb! #SoCalTravels . #FindYourPark #WildlifeSafety More safety tips at https://www.nps.gov/subjects/watchingwildlife/7ways.htm . #natureupclose #nationalparkservice #snakesofinstagram . 📹: @nationalparkservice
8/13/18 - The Milky Way at Barker Dam in Joshua Tree National Park, above the Joshua Trees! This is the place where I saw the most Perseids Meteor Showers during my visit! Unfortunately due to the fast and unpredictable nature of the Perseids Meteor Showers, I was unable to photograph them at all.

Juniper Tree & Monolith -- Junipers often appear to be growing straight out of a solid rock and can withstand conditions that often kill other plants and trees. They grow in baking heat, freezing cold, sunlight and with little water. They grow very slow and live from 350 to a 1,000 years . Canon EOS 5D mkII 17-40mm f/4L @ 17mm @leefilters .6 soft nd grad
The thing that I learn for sure over the summer: things are never certain. Learning and improving is the the journey of life. Each day should be used/utilised to improve from what the things we learn yesterday and thus build our knowledge. Either learning new skills/abilities, learning from mistakes/experiences, each day we should be able to make ourselves better than the day before. There's a saying that in order for us to grow, we have to be challenged everyday because a comfort zone is the main enemy of progress. I admit that I may have been holding on to the past too long and have been in a stagnant phase for a bit but in order for us to learn from our mistake first is we have to acknowledge it. Only then we can start improving what we are missing. • • • • • • #wildcalifornia  #nightphotography  #joshuatreenationalpark  #joshuatree #joshuatreenps  #nightscape  #nationalpark  #nationalparkgeek  #stargazing #visitcalifornia  #california  #caliexplored  #longexpoelite  #longexpo_addiction #longexposure_shots  #californiaadventure  #californialove  #ig_color #ig_myshot  #visualsoflife  #natgeoyourshot  #exploremore  #exploreeverything #explorecalifornia  #igdaily  #ig_captures #BrianGarnadi #Nikon_photography_
Dangers of Flash Floods...When we anticipate impacts of incoming strong to severe thunderstorms, we typically think of high winds, large hail, and tornadoes as the main concerns for damage to life and property. Because these facets of storms are treacherous, the dangers brought on by flooding can sometimes be pushed into the background. Initial impacts from intense thunderstorms generally don't include flooding. Although, once the storm has settled in, the dangers associated with it can quickly turn to flash flooding. In certain situations, storms may become nearly stationary over an area, which can lead to major flooding. Other times, situations arise where storms will line up in an orientation that results in prolonged storm activity over a specific area. This phenomenon is known as 'training,' as the storms line up looks just like the cars of a train. During a flash flood, a typical encounter for a person on foot or in a vehicle is the presence of moving water on a trail or roadway. Unfortunately, it is easy to underestimate the power of moving water, as the force is often much greater than one would think. It takes only 6 inches of moving water to knock a person off their feet and carry them away. One foot of water has been known to put a vehicle out of control, only to be swept up by flood waters. All too often, drivers underestimate the power of moving water over a roadway. Because of this, more than half of the flood-related fatalities in the U.S. each year occur while people are in their cars. It is for this reason that you should never drive your car into a flooded roadway. Even if the water looks fairly shallow, the pavement below it could be washed out in some sections, and the true depth and force can never be estimated until one has gone too far. When you find yourself facing water over a roadway, turn around and safely go back the way you came. If you encounter flooding on a trail, get to higher ground. Be prepared, stay updated with the latest weather forecasts.

#findpaulmiller Paul is a former colleague & friend of mine. Paul & his wife Stephanie were on vacation celebrating their 26th anniversary. Paul went for a quick hike before they were scheduled to fly back home to Ontario on July 13th, but he never returned.

been traveling these wide roads for so long my heart’s been far from you ten-thousand miles gone —River by Leon Bridges ⌓—⌓—⌓—⌓—⌓ started the morning of day 59 on the road with this song. there have been a lot of songs that have helped rotate the wheels on this drive across America and back. when my own words can’t quite express the moment, there’s always a song that can at least begin to. there are countless thoughts i want to write down and share about this trip, but for now... this will do. . #thewildandwonderfulamericanroadtrip
Thankyou Joshua Tree NPS for your efforts in the search to find Paul! It has been over a month since Paul was last seen, and we remain hopeful.

Wildlife Wednesday....Interesting Fox Facts: 1. Foxes have whiskers on their legs and face, which help them to navigate. 2. Gray foxes can retract their claws like cats do. 3. A male is called a ‘dog fox’ while a female is called a ‘vixen’. 4. Foxes are generally solitary animals; unlike wolves, they hunt on their own rather than in packs. Do you know any interesting fox facts? #jtnpa #joshuatreenationalpark #joshuatreenps #nationalpark #grayfox #fox #wildlife #desertwildlife #wildlifephotography #nature #natureshots #allnatureshots #natureaddict #naturelovers #nature_seekers #nature_shooters #nature_brilliance #nature_prefection #naturephotography #findyourpark #exploreresponsibly #optoutside #respectwildlife #wildlifewednesday #happyhumpday

Today, @whiskandwander is sharing why she loves her home state... . “What we love most about California is the diversity of landscapes and unique places we can explore as a family. We have everything from beautiful beaches, to mountains, deserts, Joshua trees, sierras, redwoods, lakes, and lots of fun cities.” . For those of you who have explored California with kids, what did you and your family enjoy most about your time there? Let us know in the comments! #gowithnugget 📷: @whiskandwander
