Wisconsin Insects

| 0 comments

They're creepy and they're crawly, but some of Wisconsin's insects can be quite beautiful, especially under the macro lens of a camera. From dragonflies and gypsy moths to lightning bugs and monarch butterflies, they all play crucial roles in the state's ecosystem, including pollinating plants, aerating soil and helping break down dead materials. All the more reason to appreciate these bugs, even if they do give you the heebie-jeebies.
