I’ve been incredibly remiss! AIF #6: “Beetle Surprise!” was posted at Insect Art while I was traveling in France, and in the post-travel crunch I simply neglected to update this page. I’m sure most of you have seen it by now, but if you haven’t it is well worth a visit – 16 contributions in which hostess aquakej highlights the ways that beetles surprised their contributors. My deepest appreciation to her for hosting this issue in such fine fashion.
An Inordinate Fondness #7: Beetles beautiful is up as well at Salagubang. Issue host Estan Cabigas, a veteran beetle collector himself, focuses on the beauty of the beetles found in the issue’s 14 contributions. My thanks also to Estan for hosting this issue, and while you’re there be sure to check out some of his many excellent beetle photographs.
Next month’s issue of AIF will be hosted by Mike Bok at Arthropoda. Send your submissions directly to Mike or use this handy submission form. Submissions are due September 15! Perhaps you’d like to consider hosting an upcoming issue of AIF – hosting is fun, easy, and a great chance to expose your blog to a wider readership or find new blogs of interest. All months from October on are open for hosting – if you’re interested, send me an email indicating the month of your choice.
