A very snipe-ish bird exploded from some brush as I passed it and flew away quickly. No time for picture, alas, but it looked and sounded just like a snipe. Very cool!
Students found this orange and black insect in our school garden at 12:30 in the afternoon. We haven't been able to determine its species, and we're hoping to get more information.
Buzzing around my window. Big bug!
I suspect this is Promyrmekiaphila, but I can't really see the cymbium, let alone any dorsal spines thereupon.
