Dead Insects Seeing A New Light

Many people are grossed out when they unscrew a light fixture and find a menagerie of dead bugs. San Francisco Insect artist Lisa Wood decided to turn the specimens she found into a small work of framed insect art. Check out, what I thought, was an incredible diversity of insects found in her San Francisco home lighting.

Lisa unscrewed her light fixture and found this below.

She then selected the best diversity and specimens and prepared them for framing.

The victims all lined up.

The Final piece is a perfect memorial for our lost insect friends.
