Now Playing Tracks

Everyone has a bucket list of things they want to do, places to go and people to meet. I have a bucket list of insects to find in my lifetime. I’ve crossed off a few good ones so far, like the Red Flat Bark Beetle, aptly named.


the Treetop Bush Katydid (took me three years to find one, now I raise them)


or the Ebony Jewelwing damselfly


Going through some old photos, I found another bucket-list-bug which had been the highlight of my vacation a couple of years ago. 

The Elm Sawfly.



A truly spectacular creature. Not a fly at all; related to wasps. Big and clunky, somewhat menacing looking to an outsider but completely harmless and quite tame! Found a few of them up in the White Mountains, and it really made my day. 

Don’t ask me how a bug gets on my bucket list, because frankly I think I just form some sort of abstract attachment to them and then make it a goal to fulfill that milemarker of sorts, but when I finally find one, sometimes after years of searching, it’s the best feeling in the world.

Up next on my list- the Phantom Crane Fly! (curse you specter, for always evading my ever-ready camera) 




A while ago whilst watching supernatural, I began to wonder about the burning-on-the-ceiling deaths and why on earth their stomachs bled, which then led to to the possible horrifying conclusion that the women targeted may have been pregnant at the time.

John and Mary had a baby but you never know, they could have accidentally made another

The woman who narrowly escaped this fate was part of a new family with a new baby and again there’s the possibility.

Finally there’s Jess, her and Sam would have had a sexual relationship and again there could have been a small moose growing in her tummy.

Obviously if this even a possibility the pregnancy would be just starting and unknown to the mother and father, but it would explain the whole bloody stomach thing

Or this may just be me putting more pain into an already painful situation


Okay but what if Sam thought of that too.
