"Bugger" invasion

Over the past few years, I have become very interested in insects, collecting them, drawing them, pinning them....catching them....employing all my friends in catching and freezing them..., I believe I am in need of professional help. At night, when I can't sleep, I'll sneak outside in my jammies and a butterfly net, hoping to find some cool visitors by our floodlights. My neighbors probably think I'm drunk. Anyway, I have started a little "bug book" in one of the many Moleskines that I have laying around the house. Here are the first couple of pages...and a snapshot of my "insect morgue" where the little buggers are prepared for mounting and display.
