Good evening everyone,
I have a question: does anybody have tips how to ‘dry’ specimens from alcohol and get them pinned? How to get the wings dried properly?
Sometimes I would like to see a specimen pinned, because you can see the dusting better and because I prefer dry above working in alcohol.
Thanks for your tips!
Best wishes, Niels-Jan Dek
