Field Notes - mantis fly about 30mm at lights at night. Family Mantispidae
This odd looking bug has been on one of my front windows all night. Its teeny tiny, but was able to get a decent up close picture of it
especie encontrada en ambiente húmedo templado enriquecido por ríos y arboles mayores
A cold front is coming tomorrow, so tonight may be the last evening I can put up the moth light (with some success)... Spotted some common moths, but they're still fun to see. :)
