Fun stuff...loved seeing all the Plethodons.

The long horned beetle isn't Pasimachus, it's a hardwood borer of some sort, but the name escapes me. Prob. a Prionid of some sort?

The stick insects mating are Anisomorpha buprestoides...cool find!

The chafer beetle at the tail end is Pelidnota punctata

some interesting animals there

May I ask why you feel the need to take everything in your hands? Pictures in natural habitats are much more interesting IMO

Well I'm a very hands on type of learner and teacher. I like to show people that these animals are not the dangerous volatile creatures many think they are. I personally find interaction with them to be more stimulating for my own biology needs. It's my own personal style I suppose. I feel when people can handle and see an animal up close they are able to garner more appreciation for it, especially if they are not well versed in the natural sciences. I'm more of Steve Irwin than a Jacques Cousteau in conclusion.
