Another night in the forest

Sun, May 26, 2013 at 09:56:56 AM

Accompanied by a small Eco-tour group lead by the reserve manager, Ernesto Rodriguez, and our long-time friend and collaborator Mark Deering, we returned to the slopes of Volcan Orosi for another night of observations and photography.

'White witch' moth, almost 10" wingspan


The air was a little less humid, the temperature a little higher and consequently we observed many different moths and other invertebrate species coming to our lights.

A beautiful large katydid, approximately

4 inches in length.

What an amazing diversity of insects there is here, no two nights are the same; fascinating!
