Description

I was on a road trip with John and Kendra Abbott. In addition to looking for odonates, they are also working on a new field guide to insects of North America. They were doing some black lighting at night as time and locations permit. I took advantage of the light box photo set ups they are using to take illustrative images of various insects, so I’ll post a few I took here. These were insects that were collected at a light at night, then photographed.

I just love the pattern on the underwings of this species. Sometimes described as the most intricate and beautiful pattern of any butterfly.

Yes, I know this is the filleted carcass of perhaps a 50 pound catfish hanging from a stop sign...but not knowing the origin of the catfish and wanting to document this unusual observation, I guess "human" is the most appropriate title. Perhaps this might be considered "Rural Arkansas Folk Art", or "Arkansas Highway Whimsey" but I'll leave that up to the viewer. Anyway, it was a rather unusual thing to see at Y City, Arkansas.

I’m on a road trip with John and Kendra Abbott. In addition to looking for odonates, they are also working on a new field guide to insects of North America. I took advantage of the light box photo set ups they are using to take illustrative images of various insects, spiders, etc., so I’ll post a few I took here. The tick in these images was one I sort of had a personal relationship with, as it was crawling on my sock. ID to genus here, I will add a species eventually. It was plucked off my sock, photographed, then retained as a specimen by John. Take that, tick!

The identifications are generally to family or sub-family level here but all will be identified in the lab at a later time and I will add that information. If you know the species, feel free to add an ID.
