Arthropod Observations

On Monday, September 13 I went to Virgil Philip's Farm Park just outside of Moscow. It was around 1 pm and was warm, sunny, and there was a slight breeze. I was there on a general insect collecting trip. I was able to get 8 arthropods yesterday using my aerial net and my aspirator. For this assignment specifically, I will be focusing on the two grasshoppers I caught. I caught them using the aerial net in a field (pictured) that had tall native grasses and some weeds (pictured). As I have never really learned about plants, I was not able to identify them. The grasshoppers were in the open field of tall grass, in full sun, jumping around when I walked past. They were easy to catch but smaller than some of the others I had caught before. Overall though it was a great collecting trip.
