Where & When to Spot?
Although common, this species is difficult to spot. They move fast and hide when you are approaching. Best time of the year to spot is during summer.
With each photo, we store date and geo-location providing us data about location and season of observation. We also use a tracking utility to save observations in the field when there was no opportunity to take a good shot.
