User's notes

My photos are difficult to be certain of ID. Apparently is swainsonii or agilis.

Thinking Dusky, mainly because of the distance between the eye and the nose tip, the size of the eye relative to the head length and the enlarged claws. The coloring is not typical but there is quite a bit of variation in all the A. species. Its difficult to see the head shape in the pictures. Lovely photos though.
