Up Close and Personal with the Hive

I saw this and just had to snap a picture. It is the honey bee dispay at the North Carolina Museum of Natural Sciences in downtown Raleigh. My biological illustration class visited today to get any last minute drawings and to sketch dinos and whales since they aren't exactly specimens available in our lab. This isn't a dinosaur, but I thought this display was pretty neat.

Definitely want to go back and see the Glow: Living Lights exhibit.

Giant Stag Beetle Photo by Russ Creech

I think he's pretty adorable. I wanted to keep him, but in the end we set him free in the woods.

Yay blog!

So I used to use this blog to randomly (and by randomly I mean every few years sometimes) post pictures that I had drawn, paintings, doodles, etc. I haven't made a post in almost a year but I got intrigued with the recent blogger "upgrades" and so I'm revamping, reconstructing, and taking over my blog once again! I'll mostly be posting interesting things related to art or science, especially entomology. I'll also post some of the stuff/drawings I'm working on. Hopefully I'll keep up with it this time around.
