Insects and their Observers



Notes, Drollery


Entomology, Amusement

    Responding to the publication of Ward and Mahon 1859, claims that entomology in sport may run into entomology in earnest: studying bees may be 'entomology in sport' but upsetting the beehive makes it 'entomology in earnest'. Insists that entomology is only fun when it is 'purely objective', because 'subjective entomology' can be so serious that it keeps its victims 'awake at night'.
