Beetle Quest

I went along on a mission to find and collect Aegialites beetles. A small shoreline beetle that hangs out in crevices of rocks in the splash zone, some folks are studying their genetics to get a better understanding of the relationships between different populations.

During the trip, I was a little surprised to see a Red-throated Loon and Rhinocerous Auklet close to shore in Herring Cove.

The leaf hopper pictures are of a collection made a couple weeks back.
