Finally getting my millions of photos uploaded and IDed on iNat. The moth on my head is a Modest Sphinx.

In case you’re wondering why I have a net on my head: imagine it’s the middle of the night, you’re by a lake, and you have a flashlight on your head. How often do you really want to drop everything to wash gnats out of your eyes? (I still carry an emergency eyewash kit, the tiny ones can still fit through the netting. WHY DO THEY WANT TO DIE ON MY EYEBALLS????)

I do have a net hat, but forgot it on this trip. It’s hard to see over the brim anyway!
