Photographer Alex Wild picks his favorite images of insects from the year. Bugilicious.
Thanks for the link love, Carl!
I’d like to clarify that these photos are not mine. Rather, they are my selection of other people’s shots. The lovely picture of a robber fly above was taken by the inimitable Thomas Shahan. I’m working on another, considerably more self-indulgent post of my own best shots of 2009.
