It's July in the desert

We usually start the day with clear skies or light clouds, but by 11 am you can see thunderheads forming over the sky islands, the mountain ranges surrounding the valley. By late afternoon it is raining somewhere, although it never seems to be raining here....

In the evening we are treated to beautiful sunsets.

In the monsoon season a whole different set of flora and fauna emerges. The tarantula found on the porch is one of them. Did the babies wear off the hair on her back?
