I saw quite a lot of invertebrates (butterflies, beetles, flies, bees, spiders, and one millipede) in June. Most are not yet properly identified. I will try to do so later in the field season. Until then, just enjoy the diversity of invertebrates seen here in Gunnison National Forest.
After all that snow and rain in May, June pretty much provided the best conditions one can ask for in terms of doing fieldwork - sunny, dry, and warm. I did fieldwork almost every single day in June, except for last Sunday and a couple of rainy days, which explains the lack of posts until now. Now that many of my plants are done flowering and starting to set seeds, I can slow down for a tiny bit. I have divided my all of my photos from June into six different topics. This one is just an assortment of different photos.
Full moon on June 2nd.
