A small portion of Ed Sampson's insect collection.

"I began collecting insects when I was only seven or eight years old. My parents were very indulgent of my interest in bugs. Once when we had company, a woman was performing a piano recital when a large hornworm that I had caught crawled slowly across the top of the piano as she played. Fortunately, she didn't see it."

– Ed Sampson

Ed Sampson was an entomologist and the owner of the Mourning Cloak Ranch on Old Town Road, and approximately 5,000 different species are represented in his vast insect collection.
