Insect-Lovers Reports / News

:star: :star: :star: Sorry for the month hiatus. We say sorry for any inconvenience, but we were both very busy with some real life issues that had to be resolved first.
Now the good news... None of your submissions have gone lost, and are all added now to the correct month folders. All is running smooth again and we promise to keep it that way again from now.
Sorry again, and thanks for your patience :hug: :hug: :hug:

A Word From the Admin

Well... First I want to mention my friend Leandro leocbrito who founded this as an old-style club. He got busy with uni and work, so he had to let it go, and asked me to take it over.
So I'll try to be your "father" here. And there's a lovely "mother" too for you, Roji-Hachi (Rosanna)! So it will be a "perfect family".
Go give her a big :kiss: & :hug:
I'm not a skilled Phd. Philosopher, but call me a "life philosopher". In love with nature, all aspects, and always thinking about ways to show its beauty, and so hopefully aware some more people about what our world today is destroying, and keeping from our children and next generations to witness.
One of these are INSECTS/INVERTEBRATES. I'm from Antwerp, Belgium, the (industrial) north of the country, so we don't have them much here. But with every chance I get, I go hiking. Mostly in France & Italy. Hiking for myself, sometimes organizing there walks in the mountains with others, encouraging people to photograph them, so they will always keep in memory these fantastic places, and share them with others.
For the club... I want this to be a cozy place first, friends, sharing art, but also tips/tricks, travel plans, whatever. As long as it's supporting each other.
I'm a quite nice old bummer skinny hairy hippie-punk teddybear gorilla most of time, and I hate rules and laws. I'm not a police officer. I'll try to be a guide. Just try to follow some basic rules here to make things run smooth. That's all. Mistakes are no crimes as some think. And you can always ask for help regarding anything. Together we will always find a way to make this club a nice place for everyone. Regardless background, race, colour of your eyes, size of your right big toe, religion, politics,... Everyone is welcome here as long as you show respect for all others too! So, let that be my first and maybe only rule/law...
Some more activities are setup now (contests,...) and more will come. Suggestions are always most welcome!

So... that's it for now. Spread the word about this wonderful club, and have all a great second, minute, hour, day, week, month, year, life!

I was hoping to share this with everyone, but it seems I'm too late, but I'll say it anyway.
If anyone sees this, share it around, for those who love bugs, if your interested in helping them, then start here
Worldwide Butterflies
You can buy Caterpillars and then release the butterflies and if you get enough experience perhaps even become a breeder yourself

can someone please make a new bug group? I really don't have time for that, sadly :( But I see a lot of comments with complaints, people want a descent insect group. And they're right! DA deserves a good bug group. So if someone would please please please do that? And invited us by just commenting on my comment? This group has enough views to make it a way to promote a living bug group :S unless this one comes to life again in the distant future. But I don't think that's gonna happen... So if there's somebody out there who wants to have a group with many people, here's your chance ^^

Is this place dead?

It seems like it but people keep viewing the group. Maybe the group creator should have just handed over the reins to someone else?

This seems to be such a wonderful Group. Don't let it die. At the very least, let someone else take over. You seem to have some volunteers already. And I'm willing to add my name to that list as well.
please add [link] to yoou gallery
Please, don't close the group! It's a wonderful place and it is one of the few insect clubs here on Deviantart...Just have patience :) Or give the title to someone else, your choice.
so im guessing the groups dead.
