In honor of Saint Patrick’s Day, please remember to eat something green
Whether you shoot out silk at the same time is entirely optional.
Early efforts to invent the abacus were not very successful.
This stick insect baffled at the child being more impressed by the set of 64 crayons than the four markers he gave her – cyan, magenta, yellow, and black. After all, she can make far more than 64 colours with his gift.
Maybe he just doesn’t understand birthdays.
Turns out it’s hard to get a good photo of locusts that both show the insects and that show just how much they cover everything in their path.
Still, they seem to like this post anyway.
Even though they’re pretty much just butterflies that are lacking the scales that make them special, I still get excited when I get to see a clearwing.
This butterfly knows whether there will be six more weeks of winter, but as it won’t be alive six weeks from now, isn’t telling anyone.
First time caterpillar riders are advised to select the ones with handles, in case the ride gets too extreme.
Butterflies stand on their food as they eat it. Just like kittens and puppies.
Sure, when caterpillars make them, we think it’s cool and show them to our friends, but when aliens make them, we get all freaked out about “pod people” and ‘invasion”.
“Excuse me, but I think I dropped something. My labial palpi!”
“Do you have a map? Because I just keep on getting lost in your ommatidia.”
“Did it hurt when you fell from heaven or did you just slowly tumble down, blown about by extremely mild winds?”
“Is it room temperature in here or is it just you?”
“You’re so sweet, you’re giving me a tarsusache.”
“Do you come here often or have you only been flight capable for an hour or so?”
I hope you get all the treats you want.
This dragonfly suggests that, if you are displeased with the state of the world, you should burn it all down and start over. However, dragonflies are positioned to benefit greatly from global warming, so this dragonfly may not be a neutral party.
Why are you considering advice from a dragonfly anyway? They’re brains are extremely small.
Anyway, burying things deep into the earth or drowning them in the ocean is a more responsible use of carbon.
I have, thus far, been surprised to find that most butterflies look exactly the same in ultraviolet.
FYI, the tarantula hawk is neither a tarantula nor a hawk.
Have I mentioned that I have a new macro lens to play with this summer?
Sometimes you see a bee and just have an infrared camera with you.
Sometimes that works out.
Someone left their candy on the ground for more than five seconds.
Remember to hug someone today.
Slowing posting because AfterShot Pro doesn’t yet support my new camera, so I have to edit in Lightroom, which takes forever.
Worth it for some shots, I think.
