For those who love lists and bugs....

Vanishing insects of the United States.

That is quite freaky!
I never imagined so many bugs were vanishing: over 100 dragon and damsel flies, no wonder they are a challenge to photograph.

Scary that creatures who have existed for millions of years, some of them barely changed, are now endangered.

As for the missing moths? They're all in my bathroom - millions of 'em.

Thats an incredible piece of work. And depressing.

Some of them have such pretty names, too...

I'm participating in WC's 20 Comments Wednesday. Visited you earlier and you rejected my comment???

Feeling very blue about that...:( or maybe Blogger was acting up.

Know that bees are important and all but....

nah, won't say it.....

Whenever I leave a comment here, I get a Mailer Daemom from Yahoo saying my email couldn't be sent. Is there something up with your excite account, Mr. Anchovy?

Wow, there's even a cockroach on the list.

dear Nancy Drew,
I don't know what happened to your comment. I certainly didn't reject it!!! It must be a blogger issue. Please don't be blue! WC, I think you are right, there is some issue with my excite account. I'm going to switch it over to a different email soon and see if that makes a difference.

Sorry for these technical issues.

I had no idea there were so many dragon flies! I don't know how they coul be endangered, since they all seem to use my canoe as a cheap motel every weekend
