More Beetles from the Collection

The two Dynastes, male and female (bottom left) were collected locally (Florida) a few years ago.  The others have been acquired through trades with other entomologists and enthusiasts.

    • Hi Johanna. Most store well with only slight color changes. However, some of the fleshier insects tend to shrivel up and lose color as they dry. My husband does most of the actual collecting, drying, and mounting. I get the fun part of drawing them.
      Thank you and have a lovey weekend.
