Because it’s Fall, my favorite time of year and the time to be laying thousands of eggs, kicking out the drones, digging holes to live in for 7-17 years, building tiny houses out of rocks, or dying because you only live a couple months.

I have a sale in my etsy store right now, 20% off all orders $20 and over.  Use coupon code SEPT20 on insect wing earrings (no insects were harmed in the making of these), necklaces, artwork, etc.
