After 2 hours of driving and hiking to the high camp, we arrived at the Chimborazo.
Christian used the opportunity in camp for a first night catch. With the help of a UV lamp, we lured nocturnal insects into a net.
Miriam assisted and photographed the captured insects.
On of our catches was this stately moth specimen (approx. 16 cm wingspan) from the owl butterfly family (Noctuidae) at over 4000 m above sea level, at about six degrees Celsius.
