back to the forest this weekend. made it safely home without any rattlesnake encounters. it was actually too cold for them to be out. the mosquitos were horrible.
but the beetle action? the beetle action was sweet!
that’s a polyphylla decemlineata. here he is later, chillin’ with one of his buggie friends:
we got there just before dark, set up our area, the guys started grilling while we went and photographed some critters before the light disappeared.
after sunset, r turned the black lights on and soon the moths all came. thousands of critters. we were only interested in one specific moth species.
probably our last blacklighting trip for the year.
