Life as a falconer, insect systematist, and double Masters Student (or a look into the mind of someone who is questionably sane).

18 June 2006

We took the aerial tram through the rainforest. The way up we were mid canopy or so and on the way back we were above the canopy. The trees were huge (shocking I know). Hopefully I'll be back sometime and get to do some collecting. There is this huge bridge that would be great to run lights on- it was about 300 ft in the are and probabily 300 ft long. Woolley wanted to cover me and Cammack in tanglefoot and lower us over the side. We caught some white Fulgoroids hand collecting on the way down to the midpoint. I think we were driving the guide crazy since she kept having to wait for us to catch up after chasing some bug around. There were some really cool wevils in the canopy but we weren't able to snag any. Maybe next time
