Day 01 - Continued... checking out the light trap!

Dusk came, and we explored the camp area and set up our black light traps. The black lights served its purpose, with pretty great results! Many insects including leafhoppers and moths swarmed the light as soon as night fell. Some uncommon visitors included a dobsonfly and the occasional mantis.

Crowding around the light trap we set up.

A praying mantis is attracted to the insects and lights.

A large katydid surrounded by various other critters.

A friendly toad crossed our path!

A large female wolf spider prowls at night (their eyes reflect the light!)
