Bugs!

For your viewing pleasure I’ve set up a new Hemiptera gallery at www.alexanderwild.com. Hemiptera are the “True Bugs”, a large order of insects defined by having the mouthparts modified into a hollow beak. You can visit the gallery here:

Bountiful Bugs Photo Gallery!

I admit being a little embarrassed at how few photographs I have of true bugs. They are a stunningly diverse order of insects, with a great many attractive species, and are extremely important both economically and ecologically.

    I’m short on Hemiptera pix, too. Probably because so many of them are pests, and as such, they suck.
