The Other Cartographer

On the one hand, Writer-Cartographer has been and is still working on the maps for the next book in this series.

On the other, Naturalist-Cartographer just acquired a GPS to define locations where something was found or photographed.   To practice, I went out back and marked some spots where I know I'm likely to take pictures...and found the chaste tree in bloom, and a cloud of Fiery Skippers, Hylephila phyleus,
around it and some nectaring on the flowers.
 
 


I could even tell you exactly (as exactly as the GPS gets, which is not that exact according to the screen on this one)  where this is, but anyone seeking to find it using their GPS would have to trespass across neighboring properties as well as this one to get to it, so I won't.   But you can enjoy the orange v. purple colors.
