Panama Bugs

You have been warned 😉

There seems to be an endless variety of bugs here. I’ve been taking my camera and macro lens with me when I work in the yard, and the tiny bugs are as fascinating as the larger ones. When I download the photos, then the details really become visible.

      Really? I have thought about doing that but didn’t know if my work was up to it. Maybe one of these days I should give it a try. Thanks for the vote of confidence 🙂

      I have looked for a bug book with no luck, so there is a need. As many bugs as there are here though, it would take a small army to document them all.

    Awesome pics, it helps me remember a lot of my childhood interests and fascination when going by lights outdoors and checking the fauna underneath. There is a book with pics: Insects of Panama and Mesoamerica: selected studies.
    You can compare your pics to ones taken in the Smithsonian studies, I think. http://news.mongabay.com/2012/1213-arthropod-survey-science.html, and they have discovered new species with pictures viewed on the Net.

      Oh wow, I knew there were lots of bugs here but my goodness! It looks like I will have plenty to watch and photograph for a long time to come. Thanks for the info on the book. That’s an expensive one, but maybe I can find a used copy somewhere.
