Vicarious Friday Beetle Blogging

Despite the fact that I have a beetle blog and Alex has an ant blog, it is the latter where the regular series Friday Beetle Blogging resides (hmm, I wonder if I should start a Myrmecine Monday series?).  Alex has perhaps the best science-based entomoblog out there, so I’m thrilled to contribute today’s edition – check it out: Friday Beetle Blogging – the Swift Tiger Beetle.

    I think Myrmecine Monday would be a prefect addition to the blog. Maybe you should start with an interesting genus such as Polyergus, Atta, Acromyrmex, Pogonomyrmex, Trachymyrmex, etc…. Lol, I could keep listing them. I just chose a group you might have had some contact with before. (Well, except Polyergus, they are just cool.)

    • The “Myrmecine Monday” quip was a little tongue-in-cheek, although it would be a great series for the “other” blog author to run with (hear that James :)). Sadly, I haven’t been as attentive to ants as Alex has been to beetles (my Paraponera clavata experience notwithstanding).
