It's been quite awhile since I actually let Ray on my team, requesting that he keep and eye out for me for little creepy-crawlies and six-legged critters and the rewards of his participation in my attempts have already begun to pay off in leaps and bounds! Anything strange, anything unusual that he's not seen before he bags and brings to me. "Catch first, ask questions later!" seems to be his motto and his help in identifying and locating the various insectia that inhabit these parts (he stays there so it's more convenient for him to spot stuffs as well!) has been really quite invaluable. Why, just this month alone he's manage to get me...
|One butterfly and one moth (the bottom two, still unidentified)|
And two, rather amazing beetles.
