On the twelfth day of Christmas, a museum donor gave to me….
Twelve giant moths,
Eleven giant-sized unit trays (dang, need one more for the moths),
Ten drawers of Halictidae,
Nine springtails a leaping,
Eight wrong IDs,
Seven diplopods a swimming (in ethanol),
Six empty cabinets,
FINE-TIP FORCEPS THAT AREN’T BENT!!!
Four calling visitors (“Do you know what this insect is?”),
Three French papers,
Two jugs of ethanol,
And a tiny fly for us to ID!
Seasons Greetings and a Happy New Year from all of us at the Frost Museum!
