Bug Bootcamp collection

In June-July 2016, I took an Entomology course in field taxonomy and ecology of insects (informally known as Bug Bootcamp), stationed at the Sagehen Creek field station. During this time, I took pictures of a few of the creatures I saw - I am now in the midst of uploading those observations - but since the course required making a large insect collection, I focused more on collecting/curating/identifying than on taking pictures. I have several hundred specimens from five weeks there (6 full Schmitt boxes), and although I would like to have them uploaded as observations here on iNaturalist, doing so would require taking pictures of hundreds of mounted specimens using a microscope, which would be incredibly time-consuming! I got a lot of really cool insects, but I think for the time being I will delay or forgo taking those pictures, especially since I really want to get to my observations from Peru in December 2016-January 2017. It is a shame, partially because I got some taxa that currently have very few observations on iNaturalist (e.g. Nosodendridae).
