    I know it would lengthen the entry, but I am always curious as to the idiosyncratic reasons for the choice of insect of the week….

    Thanks for the comment Margaret!

    I’m not sure how the other authors go about choosing the species the decide to highlight, but often it is something that I have come across that catches my eye. For this insect of the week, I noticed that we hadn’t done any odonates recently, so I went to our collection and found these spectacular damselflies that I had occasionally seen flying around small streams when I am collecting. After spending a little time looking up literature I decided it would be an interesting choice.
