Lecture Assignment #3

Location: Moscow, Idaho (field on southern side of A st. near McDonalds).
Date: 14 September 2021
Conditions/circumstances: calm, cool, and around sunset
Habitat: open field with tall intermediate wheatgrass and some trees

I went out to find insects in an open field around sunset. I spotted a common yellow jacket and what I think is a bronze ground beetle. It was metallic in color and I found him resting in the grass. I am excited to add it to my collection! I did not have the best luck catching the yellow jacket, but I did come across an apple tree! I decided to pick some for later. Because it was cooler in the day I did not have the best luck catching insects, however I went to the night time collecting trip at the reservoir and caught several bugs.
