User's notes

Walking towards the river along the higher ground where the vegetation was reasonably tall and lush there were three or four Long-nosed Lycid Beetles flying around. They would land on something for a while before taking to the wing again. They would occasionally fly closer to another one but there was no interaction from what I could see. (Sorry, this is from November last year, I am catching up with some photos I have.)
