A little Zoology - Bug Club

We had a great Bug Club today, there were plenty of bugs to be found and studied. LittleBit was super excited to catch 2 butterflies, 4 spotted beetle, and a tufted caterpillar. In class they learned about the praying mantis and the dragonfly. They were also able to see dragonfly larvae through a microscope. Hubby took the DSLR camera today with the extension tubes, so he was able to get a few good pictures while bug hunting(chasing LittleBit).
