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.
