If you've known me awhile, you might have noticed my usage drop precipitously. Well, it's this here. I have only so many years of good health left, and I want to use them running around a lot and not sitting in front of a computer. My eyesight has always been crappy, and screentime makes it worse. So for those two reasons, I'm continuing down the Path of Unplugged Enlightenment.
That said, arthropods and plants still excite me, and I'll continue to post, but casually. On my terms.

note to self: come back to these carpet moths

I suspect that several moths in our area were misidentified as of A. neomexicana. Project for a winter day.
