Ever ended up drawing your current favorite taxon?

Recently i’ve been obsessing over the Alypia family of moths and can’t stop thinking about them. It’s gotten so bad that I just /had/ to draw them.

Alypia Langtoni, Alypia octomaculata, Alypia Wittifeldii

These are only three of my personal favorites. I wanted to know if anyone else had this happen to them before, maybe not to the extent of creating art. But just thinking about a certain taxon to an extent. Knowing the little differences to tell between the species just makes me so happy for some reason!


When my favorite taxon was vanilla leaf (and I include “deer’s foot” in that taxon), I certainly ended up drawing it.

For those of you who are visual artists, do you like to draw/paint anything from nature? - Nature Talk - iNaturalist Community Forum
