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. They are 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. The ID is to genus 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. ID by Dr. John Abbott.
