A beautiful photo by Igor Siwanowicz Thank you for letting me share your work! Be sure to check out his facebook page: facebook.com/blepharopsis • Female mantids sometimes eat their mates. • Yes, it's true, female praying mantids do cannibalize their sex partners. In some instances, she'll even behead the poor chap before they've consummated their relationship. As it turns out, a male mantid is an even better lover when his brain, which controls inhibition, is detached from his abdominal ganglion, which controls the actual act of copulation. But most instances of sexual suicide in mantids occur in the confines of a laboratory setting. In the wild, scientists believe the male partner gets munched on less than 30% of the time. • #prayingmantis #cannibal #mantids #naturelove #naturelovers #nature #insect #insects #fact #facts #world #savetheplanet #earth #forest #entomology #naturehike #naturelovers #natureisbeautiful #nature #naturewalk #naturephotograph #dayshots #insectsofinstagram #photooftheday #fauna #natureshooters "perfect 👌 Via: -@insectguru 💖 Follow me @insect_shop_insta for more 💗 ❤ Update new pictures everyday! ➖ 📌 Tag someone to make their day better. ❤️ Double Tap & Tag your Friends Below⤵ #insect #insects #bug #macrophotography "

I have no idea what this is. Maybe some type of predatory wasp? #bigfourrailtrail #bug #insect
_____________ Activity by the Campfire. My favorite picture that I took from a backpacking overnighter in the north Georgia mountains with my friends despite the quality from the lack of light on the iPhone. In the darkness of the night, many animals and insects prowl openly, there were so many to see and we are no exception if you were a weary traveler. 😄 . . . Having recently finished the book- The Lost City of the Monkey God by Douglas Preston, I like to think that we were on a expedition deep in the wilderness of the Honduras jungle as they did. We saw many snakes, ants, different type of spiders, hoppers, and other various night crawlers, never thought I’d see that much in one short trip. Though luckily, sandflies were not a problem like in the jungle, the amount of deet we had on didn’t stop hungry flying insects and ticks from biting. I had multiple bites all over my arms, neck, and legs. We camped next to the river between two large boulders. We played a short game of ‘Donner Dinner Party’ that is set back in the early 18th century American Pioneer. Unknown animals wandered around the tent keeping some of us company through the night. Hunger took over quickly as we ran out of food supplies from the night before. Luckily, I’ve caught a trout in the morning and shared it amongst us all, what a morale booster that fish did. The expression on my friends’ faces were priceless, sadness wiped away quickly as we shared the fish but it came back just as fast as it came. In this national park, we had no soldier patrol like Preston did in his jungle expedition but we had a good company, despite it being some of their first time in a long while backpacking and camping. They were troopers hiking back to the car. . . . #backpacking #camping #hiking #outdoors #fishing #adventure #hammocking #fire #swimming #forest #campfire #pain #snakes #mosquito #georgiahikers #wandernorthga #jungle #sweat #pain #humid #af #insect
Giant Dragonfly A dragonfly is an insect belonging to the order Odonata. Adult dragonflies are characterized by large, multifaceted eyes, two pairs of strong, transparent wings, sometimes with coloured patches, and an elongated body. Dragonflies can be mistaken for the related group, damselflies (Zygoptera), which are similar in structure, though usually lighter in build; however, the wings of most dragonflies are held flat and away from the body, while damselflies hold the wings folded at rest, along or above the abdomen. Dragonflies are agile fliers, while damselflies have a weaker, fluttery flight. Many dragonflies have brilliant iridescent or metallic colours produced by structural coloration, making them conspicuous in flight. Fossils of very large dragonfly ancestors in the Protodonata are found from 325 million years ago (Mya) in Upper Carboniferous rocks; these had wingspans up to about 750 mm. They have a uniquely complex mode of reproduction involving indirect insemination, delayed fertilization, and sperm competition. During mating, the male grasps the female at the back of the head or on the prothorax, and the female curls her abdomen under her body to pick up sperm from the male's secondary genitalia at the front of his abdomen, forming the "heart" or "wheel" posture.Dragonflies are predators, both in their aquatic larval stage, when they are known as nymphs or naiads, and as adults. .

🤔😮😳Have you ever seen an insect like that? . 💡Maloe violaceus 🐜 This species is characterized by hypermetamorphosis, a kind of complete insect metamorphosis in which, in addition to the normal stages of larva, nymph and imago, they have several others, with great differences in appearance and way of life. The body of Meloe violaceus is 10–30 mm long, females are somewhat larger than the males. These beetle are black-blue or violet-blue, head and pronotum are very finely dotted and the elytra are quite shorter than the abdomen, as in other Meloinae species. In May–June the female digs into the soil 20–30 mm deep cylindrical holes, where they lay a very large quantity of eggs (about 2,000–10,000). After about a month larvae emerge from eggs and climb up on grass or on flowers, waiting to cling to the thorax of approaching potential host insects seeking pollen or nectar. The larvae have an exclusively parasitic life, primarily in the nests of solitary bees, or sometimes of locusts. If the larvae have inadvertently selected a honey bee, they die in the hive and may cause serious damage. When the host female bee lays eggs in its cells, the first-stage larva of the violet oil beetle eats the eggs of the bee, increases in volume and becomes the second-stage larva, which continues its development eating honey and pollen. The larva, after other two stages, forms the nymph and finally the imago.

💡🦋 Morpho peleides 🦋 the Peleides blue morpho, common morphoor is an iridescent tropical butterfly. The brilliant blue color in the butterfly's wings is caused by the diffraction of the light from millions of tiny scales on its wings. It uses this to frighten away predators, by flashing its wings rapidly. The entire blue morpho butterfly life cycle, from egg to adult is only 115 days. Morpho peleides drinks the juices from rotting fruits for food. Its favorites in captivity are mango, kiwi, and lychee. Morpho peleides butterflies live in the rainforests of South America, and can be found in Mexico and Central America. The larvae of Morpho peleides butterflies are occasional cannibals. These caterpillars are red brown with patches of bright green.

Hairy caterpillar 🐛 Thaumetopoea pityocampa The pine processionary is a moth of the family Thaumetopoeidae. The urticating hairs of the caterpillar larvae cause harmful reactions in humans and other mammals. The species is notable for the behaviour of its caterpillars, which overwinter in tent-like nests high in pine trees, and which proceed through the woods in nose-to-tail columns, protected by their severely irritating hairs. The pine processionary caterpillar is responsible for most of the defoliation of southern Europe. Although pines are most susceptible to the caterpillar, other trees such as larches are also vulnerable. The caterpillars can completely defoliate trees if large quantities are present. Though most pine processionary moths only live one year, some in high altitudes or more northern areas may survive for over two years. The adult moths lay their eggs near the tops of pine trees. After hatching, the larva eat pine needles while progressing through five stages of development. The larva is a major forest pest, living communally in large "tents", usually in pine trees but occasionally in cedar or larch, marching out at night in single file to feed on the needles. There are often several such tents in a single tree. .
