The Fox Again

I stopped by today to check on trails on the South Tract.
As I arrived, a Gray Fox ran across Hobbs Road.
I watched it run down the fire lane in the North Tract before it disappeared into the undergrowth.
This is the first time I had seen a fox in a few years. It's good to know the species is still there.

Lake Blue's Night Life

I had done some night invert surveys during the research on Polyphylla starkae, but last night was the first night I was seriously looking for moths.

My stakeout was a bench in a sandhill hammock. I spent about three hours.
The result was 20 species of moths or so.
I have more heavily into moth observation in the past month.
I'm gradually learning what's common and trying to sort out what I see to remember what is new and what is already on my list.
Here are some of the images.
