More creepy crawlies from travelling Colombia. Here is a grasshopper from the Guajira desert. Locally referred to as a flying lobster.

I've got 600 now, at peak I had 900 but already passed on some to AS. I keep them in shoe boxes.

I'm deathly fucking afraid of things that buzz and fly, but also live in a state where we get can sometimes get chill >100 degree (F) weeks in the summertime, so I'm constantly sent into a fight-or-flight pansy state by wasps and bees that enter my room (I love open windows).

During the school year I had a wasp stay in my room for a solid week. Inspired by internet stories of chill insects, I decided why not let him do his laps in my room. When Waspbro passed away (he discovered the workings of ceiling fans) I did a quick search to find out why wasps are so fascinated by lights.

As it would turn out, Waspbro was trying to fly towards the sun - to go up - so he could fuck in the sky. Since Waspbro I've become more hospitable of wasps. They don't want to enter my room to hunt humans, they just tryina' fuck. We all just tryina' fuck.

Found a dead giant water bug in a parking lot the other day, probably 2.5 in long. Spooky

Went to the nature museum in Chicago and they had a pretty cool butterfly room. Can't figure out how to get the videos from google to here though. Also lost a video of a butterfly coming out of the chrysalis that was rad.

It's a stink bug. They are so annoying! I read here that stink bugs eat more than 100 species of fruit, berries, vegetables, and cereal crops... And they are stinking! Even repeated washing of hands will not redeem the stink bug smell if you touch or take a bug.
