Photo Gallery - Other Insects

 

I love all insects but I find their nest structure and social structure particularly fascinating. These photos are of nest structures of insects besides wasps and wasp species that hunt spiders to provision their nests. They were taken during my fieldtrips around Trinidad and Tobago.

The family the specimen belongs to is given in brackets next to its scientific name, and the location the specimen was collected from is given in brackets below the name and description.
