I meant to search for Rainbow Gradient, but accidentally typed Grasshopper instead
I’m not at all disappointed
@robotzebra submitted: Found this little moth-friend on my bathroom mirror.
Genia didactyla from Northern Sweden.
Yes! Beautiful! I love funky little plume moths…are we sure about Geina didactyla though? Looks like a rose plume moth, Cnaemidophorus rhododactyla, to me. But you got a better look at it than I did!
The Hay Field describes the life living in hay and what happens to them at harvest time.
The hay stands thick and tall in the field. For months it has added height – fraction of an inch by fraction of an inch. Soft tassels bent by the wind flow as graceful as waves upon the water. Stalks and tassels that house and hide small creatures from eyes of predators.
Insects, mice, snakes, spiders, rabbits and scorpions are born to creep, crawl hide and die among the forest of stalks.…
@chirpchirrup submitted: Here’s a freshly peeled angel, from when local brood emerged a couple summers ago. About 20 minutes passed between photos. She worked hard filling out those wings!
Ohhhh wow this is a SUPER freshly peeled angel. She did a spectacular job she is so beautiful in the second photo. Those wings! Stunning
@bunnygirl360 submitted: There’s this very tiny beetle I found on my friend during September. (Norfolk UK)
They were very polite and I put them on one of my plants in front of an open window so they could leave when they wanted.
This is…the cutest little pal?? That FACE. Adorable. Glad you let them chill and fly away whenever they liked. It’s good to respect a bug’s decisions.I don’t recognize the species offhand without looking through one million beetle photos, but I can tell you with confidence this is a Friend :)
@owenwilsonsbestfriend submitted: I used to work in a lab identifying native bee specimens and they would also be posed in such interesting ways to get a good ID. My favorite was when they would sit up in a cup
I really wish deep down in my soul that these were live bees who were told to sit nicely so they could be identified but it still makes for cute photos
August 4, 2019. A green immigrant leaf weevil (Polydrusus formosus) I found at a book sale in Riding Mountain National Park. The colours are brilliant!!
