On our way South…

We left Canada for another 2 month expedition on June 28, direction: South. Our first night on the road has been lighted up by a curtain of fireflies in Indianapolis. A wonderful sight to start the trip! We finally arrived at Toad Suck, Arkansas, our first park destination.
There, we were excited to learn that an emergence of a cyclic species of cicadas was occurring in the park. Indeed, they emerge every seven years and we were lucky enough to collect some specimens! To top it off, we found a freshly emerged luna moth on our last night there! With that note, we took leave from Arkansas for Texas.
