Part journal, part ID guide, and part sketchbook.
Mostly mushrooms, some birds, a few moths, and plenty of other natural history topics.

Life in a Sap Bucket
Eupilia vinulenta - Straight-toothed Sallow
I found this moth in maple sap bucket at Westwood. I thought it was dead, but it revived after being in my hand for a few minutes. It over winters as an adult, feeds on tree sap, and has a number of adaptations for the cold, which you can read about here (you'll have to download the pdf).
