Sunny Midwestern Days Looking at Insects....

On recent collecting trips in Chicago our entomology class has been having a good time of observing insects at the end of their season:

The "field" of inquiry...

Two mating Chinese mantids, the female to lay her eggs in the next couple of weeks!


Meanwhile, two Carolina mantids, perhaps about to attack the tiny students in the background.


more than almos

 Milkweed bugs in all stages of development.

Tagging a Monarch as part of the Monarch Watch program

Hasta luego, va a viajar a Mexico - release! safe travels.

Cicada & grasshopper. An Aesop fable I never read?

everything comes from emanation

another field of inquiry - Montrose Harbor and the Magic Hedge
