I would post a picture of my collection, but it’s still in a crowded cardboard box and the specimens aren’t all sorted by taxonomic relationship yet (like I have some Hemiptera in with the beetles just because they fit there). I need to find a shadowbox that’s deep enough to accommodate Austerlitz brand insect pins.
Anyway, in response to >>41382
My favorite specimen so far is probably my fiery searcher, which is a large beautiful ground beetle (family Carabidae) that hunts caterpillars.

It’s not very big yet because I started collecting about a month ago. I have maybe 90 specimens including soft bodied arthropods preserved in alcohol (spiders, zygentoma, etc.)
