MailBUG! Fun mailbox! Looks like a home creation of a really giant fly... or maybe a bee (they both have 6 legs). But this fellow is some sort of mutant insect because it only has 2 wings (bees and flies have 4). Is there an insect that has 6 legs, 2 wings, and a lock mechanism for a nose? Dunno.
I'm a transplanted New Yorker who loves the Tucson climate. On New Year's Day I have a bit of fun calling my (snowbound) east coast friends to announce that I'm drinking coffee while sitting on my patio. (:
