Insects Found on Photo Tours

Here will be a gallery of images of insects found during our Asia photography field trips. If there is a species or number of species you want to target, let us know and we’ll focus on them for as many days of the trip as you like.

We often see stick insects and leaf insects, preying mantises of all kind. Beetles, grasshoppers, butterflies, moths, and some other interesting bugs that we can’t even find a name for.

We often find new species that we’ve never found before. This is the norm, not the anomaly. Most nights we can find something new.
