Setting up a simple little 9-meter net across water I figured would be perfect. For a demonstration project I need to catch some bats and a few different species of bats but not catch every bat in the forest. This is primarily educational and not scientific, so I have to have time to actually talk about the bats and their ecology and bat work and well in general do more teaching than dealing with bat science. I really do not want to be swamped with bats, nor catch nothing.
And it was perfect.
But there were other things out there as well. Just 10 meters from my net was a very cool and very large grasshopper nymph. The adult is the largest grasshopper in the Americas.
