The Bug Geek

Insects. Doing Science. Other awesome, geeky stuff.

I think he’s into it

I think my new monitor is digging the whole “bug” schtick…

(note the rifle in at ready in the bush...note also that the aerial net is even closer at hand...ha!)

He sorted through that little pan of aquatic muck until he picked out every last visible speck of possible life-form.

Later, he brought me the most incredible bee-mimic fly I’ve ever seen (captured with my spare aerial net)…it was so convincing I had to pull it out of the vial and count the wings…

Awesome.

      Ha! Sure, I pinned it last night…when I get good light later in the day I’ll take a pic of the fly and the bee I think it mimics…

    Love the rifle, the net, and the enthusiastic digger who’s not so much worried about bears as he is about cool critters. You have a good assistant, C!
