field guide: Field Guide to October (Vermont Center for EcoStudies). A little late but still pretty applicable here in northern New England. Bats, fungi that digests itself, Promethea Silkmoth (Callosamia promethea) and its parasitoids, masked bees (genus Hylaeus), witches’ brooms and ghost pipes, vernal pools and barred owls.
list: 33 Ways To Actually Sleep Well At Night (Rhys Thomas/Mr Porter). I know I need it chilly and humid but I’d never heard of 5-HTP.
photos: Vintage New York City (Andy Blair/Flickr). Over 500 photos. All of those I looked at were annotated as to subject and date.
4-min video: Pass the wine, please! (Joseph’s Machines/TikTok). A must-view. Wild.
