Celia is spending her summer as a junior entymologist. She’s got a bug house, and spends her days collecting every type of bug imaginable to put in there. Unfortunately….they don’t often get let out before they die. But hey, they are just bugs.
Lightening bugs are an easy catch, and one of the favorites. She names them, tries to bring them to bed with her. I have a hard time convincing her that bugs need to live outside. All of them.
Other residents of the bug house include two bees (a bumble bee and a honey bee) several ladybugs, a mayfly, a June Bug (a common beetle in this area), and a potato beetle, which is really pretty and I had not seen before.
