I am not the only field technician doing field work at the biological station at Laguna de Apoyo in Nicaragua. Xavier, a Quebecker, is here also, working on bats.

Today a few shots of the bats he's caught with a regular mist net. Couple of nights ago, after he took measurements, he hung them on the clothesline, where they went into a brief torpor, before taking off.

I haven't written much about my butterfly studies here, but I'll try to get around that soon. With the rainy season well underway, diversity and numbers have greatly increased, and I'm still finding new species for the reserve almost every day.
