I can share with you my negative experience :@
After Paul and Kahis advises in:
I did try to collect in alcohol and pin afterwards.
My test:
1. Pinning from alcohol requires much more job and time than pinning of fresh flies.
2. Pinning fresh flies in sito permits to get much better order: legs, genitalia and whatever we need to examen on this fly.

I go on pinning fly the same day I collect its!

I do the same, Nikita! :)
