As predicted, the Tricos came out in force yesterday morning, right around the time the blog published, and continued for a little over an hour, when the wind blew them back into the foliage. I  just stepped outside to see if they were massing yet, and they are lit up  in the sun over Home Pool, just waiting to fall! That will likely be our morning action for the day, as there is very little cloud coverage predicted. The upside is that we are starting with slightly cooler temps this morning, and the ambient air temp shouldn’t get too high today (supposed to stay under 80). Let’s see what happens!
