I forgot to mention… I’ll be in Arizona for the next week! I actually just arrived a few hours ago.
I’m here at the Southwestern Research Station (SWRS), run by the American Museum of Natural History, taking a Lepidoptera field/training course. Since the internet connection here is so slow and spotty, I will provide links and photos when I return. I will try to update with little stories if I can while I’m here, and will hopefully have time to flesh them out later.
This is where I came with my advisor last summer, to help him with his research and just explore. Now I’m prepared to tackle the wilderness and learn a lot about moths.
I already caught one tiny vinegaroon while wandering around flipping logs near the creek. I can’t help myself.
