Check out Small Wonders!

Are you fascinated by flies, admire ants, love Lepidoptera (butterflies and moths), bonkers for bees or just generally like to learn about nature? Then the Department of Entomology may have a new column for you!

Starting in February, the Department of Entomology unveiled a new feature named Small Wonders. This column helps to engage people that are interested in insects and related arthropods and attract those who don’t know yet they like entomology. These short articles entertain and educate and tell readers what’s cool about insects.

New articles are published the first Monday of
every month; columns are archived so you can read past articles. April currently features the mourning cloak butterfly.  You can find Small Wonders on the Department of Entomology home page as well as on social media: Twitter, Instagram, and Facebook.

Check it out and enjoy!
