A Cornucopia of Caterpillars at Governor Bridge Natural Area

A cool, clear morning seemed to offer good prospects,. and I arrived at Governor Bridge around dawn. I geared up for birds, but lingering clouds convinced me to switch to bugs after an hour or so.
Graeme showed up around 8:30, and we spent 3-4 hours bug hunting, and did well. I believe we got more different caterpillars than on any previous trip.

Graeme spotted this little frog.
