Mummified Insects from the Tomb in Our Sunny Front Window

Today I found a little cache of mummified insects-- several stink bugs, a tiny wasp-like creature, a pretty little moth, and a few lady bugs--in the space between the screen and the parting stop of the bottom sash of our bedroom window.  The sun beams in this window all afternoon, and these guys are crispy and bleached, but still beautifully articulated and detailed.  I'm thinking I might collect them in a tiny jar and pack them in the mummy's outer tomb.
