I returned to boring Davis this weekend after 2 weeks in the tropics of Granada, Nicaragua. I began my first measurements today with the help of my more experienced teammates. Everything was fairly easy, except waking up on time (I’m having a lot of jet lag). Although we didn’t find any monarchs or other insects on the milkweed, we spotted a tiny frog hidden among the grass and dirt. On a side note, a majority of markers were not yet emerged.
