If I get my act together, I plan on releasing a photo on my social media pages early in the week (on weeks that I am not blogging here) to allow people to guess/ comment/ research what it may be and then at the end of the week I will tell what it is and give a bit of information about it.  Hopefully you'll participate (except for you entomologists who already know how to identify all the bugs!).
