    1. There are so many more yet to photograph ! Posted one month ago
      1. I've heard several times that beetles are the most numerous species on the planet. However, a recent article suggested that when you include tiny wasps that are now little studied, they may be even more numerous.

        Regardless, we're not even at 1% of them, so yes, a way to go :)
