The entomology studies are inspired by a poem.... summer curtains, thoughts reflective of summers past...... Insects found in Australia's pristine fresh water creek environments

Mist nets are very fine nets suspended between trees by entomologists to capture insects during the high summer period after the rains - "Collection Time".
Upon returning back to the laboratory those insects are collated, categorized, recorded and labeled by name, species, genus and location.
They are then placed -secured by pins- in perfect order within drawers containing insects of like species.
