Octopus' Garden

Wednesday, June 04, 2008


I remember I used to beg my dad to take me through the Agriculture Building when he picked me up from the University Lab School I attended -- it was on the way to the parking lot where he sometimes parked -- because I loved, loved, loved to look at the insect mounts in the hallways. Now there's a nice little museum.

I love the giant stick insect in amongst the moths in the top photo. All so gorgeous.

I love insects! The lab where I work is an agricultural research station, so we have an entomologist here. I'm constantly bugging him (ha - get it? yes, I know. that was stupid.) about identifying various critters I find when I'm in the field. That's a nice little museum, by the way!

Presently, I am rearing some baby stink bugs. I found their eggs on the back of a leaf I was looking at (I work in plant pathology) and decided to keep them. They hatched yesterday. They're so cute! Most people would think me deranged for thinking so, but I figured you would understand.

Also: my blog is down presently for personal reasons. At some point, I'll put it back up; meanwhile, it's set to private.

Love all the pics - so pretty.

Karin: Stick insect = very, very cool, I agree!

Anne: Hooray for the stink bugs and I'm glad you like the pics! I'll look forward to when your blog's up and running again.
