Caterpillar hunting

If you’re going to hunt for caterpillars, it helps to have extra pairs of eyes (and extra beating sheets). Here was the Lep Course in Arizona, looking for anything we could get our hands on. We stopped on the side of the road, unloaded out of the half-dozen or so vehicles it took to carry us all, and started hiking. We actually didn’t find many caterpillars that day, but it was lots of fun looking (and beating the ocotillo with sticks).

The view. Not bad.
