August 21:Personal location

So the heat has really made it difficult to go out. I did go out briefly yesterday but just couldn’t deal with the humidity and high temps. So today I looked around my friends yard looking for insects. I’ve done so before with not much success. There are no native plants though he is trying to add some (he’s a renter so is somewhat limited). Anyway I was a bit more successful today and found that some of the insects I found are actually much more prevalent than I thought...evidently there are a lot of these things floating around peoples yards as I saw on the map that many were more concentrated in the urban areas. Though that may be due to more people looking for things in their neighborhoods. My best finds of the day we’re a lovely caterpillar and a beautiful moth resting at the bottom of a trash can....a Jalisco petrophila.

iIce finds. I have pretty much stayed in. I did a brief wander today, but the heat and humidity is daunting.

Yes, I felt like I was going to have heat stroke yesterday as I was climbing a hill and within 10 monitors I was so overheated. The whole situation with the heat and the fires is just so depressing.
