We had a wonderfully relaxing day. We got out the tubes and took them upstream to float down. We had fun with a toddler and collected animals from the stream, including this water strider.

Apparently this moth, Pyralis farinalis, is the flour mealmoth. I hope this doesn’t mean that we have an infestation.

This strange insect is a scorpionfly (Insecta: Mecoptera: Panorpa sp.) and was resting in the shadows on ash leaves.
