New Wasps , Bromeliads and Machete Meg

This afternoon I joined Meg aka Machete Meg (Think Lara Croft with Machetes), Meredith, Rachel, Kate, Christina and Courtney on a hike  up the ridge trail. It was a lovely afternoon with gorgeous views but extremely  muddy. Halfway up Professor Scott Shaw  pointed  out Napo townsendi Wasps living on the Dendrophorbium Plant. This was so cool as they have just recently  been given scientific names. Meg and here trusty machete led us up and onwards through the slippery mud. When we reach the top we had  to turn back as  the mud was really atrocious, the views though were so gorgeous. On the way down the girls skillfully managed to get a Bromeliad  off a branch  that was  slightly  high. I managed  to find some cool specimens.
