I suppose it was only a small step from butterflies and dragonflies to being interested in other n-legged friends (where n => 6). I have a rudimentary field guide to insects but there are so many subspecies that precise identification seems horrendously difficult. Besides, the field guide seems to expect one to have a dead specimen to study, usually the hapless creature’s genitalia, with a microscope or hand lens. Apart from the indignity, as a casual observer I refuse to kill to identify.

Here’s a collection of the other multi-legged beasts that we’ve snapped so far.

Bees & Wasps
Other Flying Critters
The Water World
Grasshoppers & Crickets
Laewings Ant-lions
Ascalaphid Cicada Mantids
Fire Bug Ground Bug Leafhopper Froghopper
