Dr. Joseph Bowden, an Arctic Arachnologist, is seen here working in the Yukon Territory (Canada) - collecting spiders in an experimental enclosure.  There are some challenges when using an aspirator (aka pooter) with a bug jacket on. And yes, a bug jacket is often needed when working on the tundra (the evidence is on his arm….)

This is me (Frank Ashwood) during a carabid-hunting detour whilst on holiday this summer in Oban, Scotland. I’m just getting into entomology and this holiday doubled the number of species in my collection! I think this is about the time I found a pair of Clivinia fossor under a rock on some upland pasture.
