I’ve been meaning to mention Dragonfly Woman’s insect blog, and now I’ve got an excuse. Chris Goforth- the Dragonfly Woman- is an aquatic entomologist and a friend of mine from when I worked at the University of Arizona. Recently, she sent this lovely print of a giant water bug.

Chris’s blog is a thoughtful repository of info on all things insect and water-dwelling. For instance, how to tell the difference between dragonflies and damselflies. And, insect metamorphosis.

And now, she also crafts insect art. Awesome.
