Hello everyone.

I've started a series on the importance and relevance of insect collection, why we have them and why have massive collections.

The series will continue in the weeks to come with more videos on collecting insects, preparing the specimens and curating a collection.

Here is the first video in the series:

Nice, it's always good to stress the importance of collecting insects, not just taking pictures. I read a good article on it once, I think it was called the "case for collecting". As a collector myself, it's nice to see others who agree. My collection is now just over 1000 specimens. I have recently added more pictures to the gallery if you are interested.
I collect a little of everything with a main interest in USA moths and worldwide Saturniidae.

Yes, they are not cheap! I really want to get a Goliathus regius when I can afford one or find a good deal.
The male G. goliatus is 96mm, from Cameroon.
The female is 78mm, from Cameroon.
The male G. orientalis is 86mm. Not sure of Location.
The female is 72mm, from the Democratic Rep. of Congo.
