More Scenes From the Bug Jar

We are still heavy into the insect world over here. Mikro has a Bug Habitat (plastic cage with multiple hatches to drop the critters in) and a bunch of little bug collecting bottles. In the past ten days or so, we've caught several types of beetles, more crickets, a bumble bee, a huge red ant, lightning bugs, a pill bug (which is actually a crustacean, not an insect),and, most amazingly, a live cicada nymph, which molted and turned into an adult cicada while we had him. We released him yesterday, and he took off on strong sure wings. What a cool thing to get to see!

And today I bought a few more bug jars...
