Continuing a decades-long tradition, volunteers gather for the semi-annual ant survey at Jasper Ridge Biological Preserve, on an overcast and rain-spattered day. I enjoy these days; we go to survey sites spaced 100 m apart; many of the sites are off trail, in places we don't usually go. I captured some interesting perspectives on some of my usual photographic subjects, such as the "Mistletoe Oak" on Road F. And saw a wild turkey!
