Western Sheepmoth. Neat-o!
Later we moved on to Mill Pond for some shade and a cool place to spend the afternoon. Much fun was had geeking out over insects. A pair of kestrels were actively chasing off a hawk much of the time too.
An insect next to my chair was busy doing some excavation. Watch closely at 1:07. He/she hauls out a pebble the size of its head!!
Riveting, I know.
Some macro lens fun:::
Back at the Flying L Ranch we watched some back lit hummers at the many feeders they provide for them. Later at dusk we came back for the evening show of nighthawks and hummers.
On the way home we stopped for some more time in the Mt. Adams wilderness.
Jen for helping me figure out this giant feather is likely from a Wild Turkey.
It was a fun mini vacation!!
