Until this weekend, I had never really taken much time to photograph insects – if they leave me alone, I leave them alone. However, one of the members of our camera club, Tom Riley, is a retired professor of entomology from Louisiana State University, and he arranged a field trip to photograph his favorite subject. Last night, we put up a few ultraviolet lights to attract the bugs, and this morning we photographed them. It was really a lot of fun. Some of the evolutionary adaptations are quite amazing. We were staying at another club member’s place (thanks, Rita Szabo!), and a few of the images in the gallery are from things lying around.
