Found this guy on the outside of my parking deck. Gorgeous!

I’m pretty sure it’s a Catocala dejecta – Dejected Underwing Moth

So we had a collecting field trip today and…

Classmate: “I feel like we’re in Pokemon.”

TA: “Pokemon was created by a amatuer entomologist.”

Seriously, I have one of the best TAs ever and I really like my entomology class. I only wish my professor would hurry up and grade our exams. I wanna know my grade. 

I tell my students every year to treat their collections (they turn in a collection at the end of the semester) like Pokemon. You gotta catch’em all! They can also trade insects for their collection. I do warn them against battling their bugs, especially with hymenopterans lol

Im holding a giveaway for these “Otherworldly Entomology” prints! Both prints are up for grabs, so there will be 2 winners. Only ‘reblogs' count as an entry but a 'like' is still appreciated.

Closing date- 10th October

Alternatively, you can buy yourself a print here

My Black widow spiderlings got their first watering!

As an introvert, I’ve done, and do, all of these things…. constantly.

Yeah I do all these things all the time

Keira loves to eat tomatoes. Whenever we have tomatoes from the store or the garden we have to keep them out of sight or Keira will eat them all.

Look who’s egg sac hatched!! It was an awesome surprise to walk into the lab on Tuesday morning and see baby black widows! They hatched from Natasha’s egg sac (back from this post) some time between Monday night and Tuesday morning. I was able to watch several of the last few spiderlings emerge from the sac. It was incredible!
