LaborDay Creek Near Sedona

For Labor Day weekend got up to Cottonwood to visit some family. I would of liked to get on some of the Oak Creek for fishing but holiday crowds were to much, so opted for a trip to one of the parks my son's family had shown us that was part of the downstream waters of Oak creek going towards the Page Springs hatchery. Still to many to fish so grandkids and all were just happy to get wet for awhile. While in the park doing our lunch, we discovered this rascally guy. I had not seen one like this but am told they are quite common, but are of the stinging type so one should beware. I have a feeling it might turn into some large butterfly???

Ben (AZW) and I were on a creek a while back and he got stung on the hand by one...don't remember it looking that wild though. He said his hand was weird/numb for 30 minutes or so...

best thing to do if you touch one and your hand goes numb is you should immediately eat it.
your numb hand wont be as noticeable.

We were just glad that the grandkids (6 and 4 yrs) didn't touch it and I didn't sit on it. I don't need any swelling or numbness in the butt, I have enough of that already!
