Bug Lovers Gather for Insecta-Palooza! 2011

boy_with-bugweb.jpgMore than 800 bug lovers of all ages flocked to the third annual Insecta-Palooza! at SSU's Darwin Hall on Saturday to explore the fascinating world of insects. Lectures, exhibits, films and microscope-viewing provided hours of fun and learning opportunities. With a theme of Metamorphosis this year, the day offered a compelling look into the impact that bees, butterflies, dragonflies and other insects play in the natural world and how they benefit humans. Next year's theme will be "World of Water." Above, is a enthusiastic visitor with an apparently equally enthusiastic Australian stick bug. (Photo by Sean Duckworth)
