Insect Collecting

 My first foray into insect collecting and preservation. 
I ordered my net, spreading board, forceps, pins and mounts through Butterflies and Things.

For those of you who have inquired, my moth painting is now available as a print in my Etsy shop.
If you are looking for originals, six new miniature bees and wasps are available

How fascinating, and what an amazing specimen. I've been painting moths myself this week, and I had no idea how beautiful or diverse they could be. I love your moth painting!

Janet: Thank you. I'm partial to moths too!

Wow, what an exciting looking project. I do have the odd butterfly as I like the idea of using them in my art (albeit in a totally different way) but have never thought about doing it myself. Your work looks wonderful too btw :) (just discovered your site via another blog)
