Morning After Visits to Pine Ridge and St. Patrick

T. lyricen at base of monument

10:30 am - With my poor luck the night before here, I decided to try my luck at Pine Ridge Cemetery during the day. I searched practically the entire cemetery with no luck. Just as I was about to leave, I found a female T. canicularis at the base of a pine tree.

Too bad every picture I took of it came out rather blurry so I'm sorry to report I have no photos for you.

St. Patrick Cemetery - Lowell, MA.

T. lyricen and base of monument11:49 am - While at St. Patrick, I decided to check the Oak tree where I found the little T. canicularis the day before. Nothing on the tree but right next to the tree was a T. lyricen in the middle of the molt process on a monument. Now I gotta check monuments now as well?!?!?

I noticed a nymph exuvium on another monument and also another T. canicularis nymph just settling down to molt. Any place is a convenient place to molt I guess.

I decide to check other areas of the cemetery. I found another T. lyricen male at the base of a willow tree completing the molt process.
