In something tangentially related to work, I've been studying up on my lepidoptera. Some of them have fabulous names. For instance:

Common Weed Nymph
Confused Woodgrain
Crowned Slug
Fiery Skipper
Little Wood Satyr
Pandora Sphinx
Pecan Cigar Casebearer
Ruddy Daggerwing
Smeared Dagger
Toadflax Brocade

I am not making any of those up. You can find links to pictures of most of them (or their larvae) at Insect Images -- Lepidoptera
