Montreal Insectarium, take one

I'll start things rolling with some Montreal Insectarium photos. These are all pix of posed or pinned, preserved specimens; I'll save the live ones for later.



Pepsis wasp attacking a tarantula.




Flat-bodied carabid beetle under bark. The visible portion of this insect was at least 5 cm long.




What does a goliath beetle wear under its elytra? Why, another pair of wings, of course!




This is an African uraniid moth, a relative of the one I photographed in Panama.





Lucanid (stag) beetles making love and war.
