Cuerna Critters: A few favorites

My apologies to all of you following Cuerna Critters for last week’s radio silence. First, a respiratory infection took me out of the field. Then, I had to battle through winter storm ‘Titan’ to make it to a conference.  (Totally worth it, by the way!) Unfortunately, all this means no new pictures. But for those still wanting their critter fix, I’ve put together some of my favorites from my last year of bug watching. I have yet to identify many of the species, so please help me out if you can!
