Das zweite geschlüpfte Baby meiner Australischen Gespenstschrecken
There is a whole system of air currents, temperature gradients and varying moisture levels around your house. You are barely aware of it, but essentially, it is the local weather for the mice and insects living in your house.

Loepa oberthuri - Oberthur’s emperor
It has pink feet!!
People on inaturalist say this is an ichneumonid wasp. I found her in a park by my house
They are correct! I love her she’s doing a great job doing waspy things. Thanks for submitting! As always, submissions don’t count towards the one (1) nice bug per day.
what if gushers weren’t filled with fruit flavored juice but instead were filled with wasps……… it’s a horrific thought but just imagine
Bugs are absolutely magical little creatures and if you don’t appreciate them you can go away!
i got my first 4 pinned insects online (super cute in case you were wondering) but i also have no clue as to how to display them since it’s different than displaying skulls and wet specimens and crystals so if anyone has any ideas/inspirations for how to display them i’d love to see it

These are not to be confused with the Coccinella genus, known as ladybugs in the US or ladybirds in Europe. Here’s probably the most famous one, Coccinella septempunctata:

Poor Stu, things haven’t been easy for the little guy? Maybe things will pick up soon…Maybe?
I like to think this little grasshopper is this mama moth’s sidekick! 😃 so cute. Is this as gypsy moth? Thanks!
They’re for sure pals, doin’ bug stuff together. I love them. It actually looks like an Achemon sphinx moth, Eumopha achemon. Gypsy moths aren’t quite as striking looking (sorry, gypsy moths). Here’s a female (top) and male (bottom) gypsy moth:
