The letter E is brought to you with a request for help. My sister, who will graduate from the University of Minnesota-Duluth this spring, is taking Entomology this semester as part of her biology degree. Like many entomology classes, she is expected to assemble a bug collection for identification.
She is learning the hard way that mid-winter Duluth does not provide the best conditions for bug finding and collecting. She and her classmates are scrounging every nook and cranny looking for critters. All her current specimens are so tiny, we had to resort to one of Onion's baby toys to photograph for this post.
Here's our plea - if any of you readers live in warmer climes (that should be just about all of you), and you come across any members of the insect family, would you send them to my sister for this project?
We're not sure how many specimens this post will turn up, but I've learned to never underestimate the boundless generosity of knitters and readers.
Who knows? Perhaps someone has a moth infestation that could be a silver lining for my sister?! If you're willing to help in her quest to gather members of the insect kingdom, leave a comment and I'll follow up to send you the details. Thanks!
