Some recent work by me and my lady.
I'm traveling at a crazy high speed right now. Besides working full time at a rather draining job, I'm running in overdrive with my photography and insect studies. I'm drinking coffee by the gallon. With two road trips planned in the near future, one to the mountains of Georgia, the other to an abandoned island (that I'd like to remain a secret), it's only going to get heavier here in the near future. We will also be hiking and pulling small trips every spare minute in the meantime as well. I welcome it, and I expected it for July in the south.
Outside my house right now sits a Passion vine flower. On it is one Swallowtail caterpillar in its last instar, three Gulf Fritillary caterpillars (2nd instar, 3rd instar, and last instar), and one unidentified black caterpillar. Here next to me as I type is another unidentified black caterpillar, and one tomato hornworm, both in their first instars, I'm trying to nurse them back to health before I place them on the Passion vine, or go buy a tomato plant for them to feast on. I've also learned of another admirer of Jumping spiders who lives here in Florida, and today I am receiving 2 Apache jumpers and 1 Bold jumper. I'm particularly excited about the Apaches as I've never had any dealings with them. With all the shadowboxes and Rosy the Tarantula, my house has become a crawling mixture of interest.
Anna has me floored, like the very first day we rolled away from the Jacksonville airport, almost exactly a year ago now. She is a constant inspiration and pulling me along when I'm burnt out, and I do the same to her when she's hit a wall of her own. We are both quite backed up in our processing, I'm 3,000 shots deep in my own editing folder, but I don't care, it can keep building because one day I'll have caught up with it.
Hope all is well. Keep on Going.
