Be like the bird that, passing on her flight awhile on boughs too slight, feels them give way beneath her, and yet sings, knowing that she hath wings. ~Victor Hugo by —erica on Flickr.
"I really trust in following my heart, that’s why I say ‘YES’. When something feels like a yes, I say yes to it, come what may.  Even if I don’t know all the steps and I can only see so far, I say yes to that."

I learned today the insect that I always thought was a ‘June Bug’ is really a Fig Beetle! … {Chrome Skies Photography & Design}
[WIKI] “Cotinis mutabilis, also known as the figeater beetle (also green fruit beetle or fig beetle and also junebug), is a member of the scarab beetle family. … Its habitat is primarily the southwestern United States and Mexico. Figeater beetles are often mistaken for green June beetles and occasionally Japanese beetles, which occur in the eastern US; however, they are not capable of damaging leaves and fruit as adults (they only feed upon already-injured fruits) and do not damage lawns as larvae to the same extent as their eastern cousins.
"Adult figeater beetles grow to approximately 1.25 inches (3 cm). They are a semi-glossy green on the top and a brilliant iridescent green on the underside and legs. They are active during daylight hours, often congregating in the shade of trees near choice breeding grounds to find mates. They make a loud buzzing sound similar to that of carpenter bees, possibly because it does not need to open its elytra in order to fly, an ability shared with many other flower beetles."

"Palm Canyon is a tropical oasis, containing more than 450 palms (58 species) within its 2 acres. A true hidden spot in Balboa Park, the winding paths take the visitor into a shady, lush canyon. The original group of Mexican fan palms - so prominent in the canyon - date back to 1912. In 2001, the California Conservation Corps restored the historic trail that connected Palm Canyon to the Old Cactus Garden. The garden also features a picturesque wooden footbridge leading from the Alcazar Gardens parking lot to across the street from the Spreckels Organ Pavilion."

"Ficus macrophylla, commonly known as the Moreton Bay Fig, is a large evergreen banyan tree of the Moraceae family that is a native of most of the eastern coast of Australia…Its common name is derived from Moreton Bay in Queensland, Australia. It is best known for its beautiful buttress roots." [info: wiki]
