Here's the first in a series of framed, pinned bugs. I have a love/hate relationship with insects. Even though they're usually my favourite section of any natural history museum or zoo they're also my biggest fear when traveling. Thankfully, in Japan I only had a few encounters with insects (mostly notably a Mukade!). It seems strange that I would avoid parks for fear of bugs but would actively seek them out in the many pet shops that sell them.
I'm working on a series of these. Here's the first one - "The Hot-footed Booted Beetle".
