Bugstock 2016

A few weekends ago I had the good fortune of attending Bugstock, Louisiana’s premiere entomology gathering. I was able to meet a number of very cool people, and see a great number of cool insects and arachnids. With several black light sheets and over twenty entomophiles scampering about looking for creatures, there was no shortage of cool arthropods to observe and photograph. I am still going through and cleaning up my photos and identifying things I photographed, but I didn’t want to wait any longer to put some up on TGAS, so here are some cool creatures to admire:
