DescriptionThis was zooming around the trunk of the big oak on the top field.  Not sure why it was about 3-4 feet off the ground when the foliage was so far above it, but it seemed to be hunting.  These apparently have a reputation for stripping trees of leaves, so not totally sure on the identification.  Certainly it looks right, but this seemed to not be a placid herbivore.
