A Privileged View of Insects at Night

October 16, 2013

The buzz of a mosquito or gnat. The chirp of a cricket.

Clues that life stirs in the night. But few of us venture into the darkness to seek it out.

Entomologists from the Divison of Plant Industry helping train new plant inspectors at the Withlacoochee Training Center provide a noctournal Insect Encounter . . .


. . . affording the trainees the rare privilege . . .


… of viewing this lovely creature on its nightly rounds.
