The first week of August my friend, Jane and I took a trip to Ritchie, Wood and Pleasants counties to collect bees and insects. We also did a little botanizing along the way. Jane was collecting bees for a study she was helping with and I was collecting moths for a study I was helping with. We made the perfect pair except I collected at night and she collected during the day. Here are some of the highlight of our 3 day trip.
