My grandson Mitchel (age 6). He loves bugs, all kinds, seen here spreading his first lep, a very nice Eacles imperialis.

Awesome photo
That's how old I was when I collected and mounted my first leps. :)

And of course back then, when they were dry and ready, I kept them in an old White Owl cigar box. lol

Serious look
Yes, he does have a very serious look on his face, lol. His sister, Haily age 11 mounted the other Eacles imperialis. They have both been bitten by the "BUG" (pun intended) to collect and study insects.
