I Made this Wants β€œbug” from sterling, 14k gold and red gold. And I’m very proud of it! πŸ’ͺ🏻🀩 To be proud or the feel it to be proud is a difficult thing for me... I don’t know why but I don’t feel it so often. So this feels really good! When I was a little child I was fascinated with this insect... if you take a closer look they are really beautiful! So what do you think of my Little bug? 🐞

The King Crow also known as Euploea phaenareta castelnaui, is the largest member of the Euploea genus. The King Crow is a moderately rare species, although it can be regularly observed in local areas, particularly where its caterpillar host plant grows. It is often spotted in the back-mangrove areas of Pasir Ris Park, Pulau Ubin and even in urban areas in the vicinity of its host plant, the Pong Pong Tree (Cerbera odollam), interesting. #insectlover #insectmacro #insectbeauty #butterflyphotography #butterflyofsingapore #insectphotography #macrophotography #macro #natureporn #naturelover #natureseekers #natureshots #sgnature #nparksbuzz #yoursingapore #mysingapore #visitsingapore #naturephotography #singaporeinsta #nature_ig #naturebeauty #natgeowild #insectphotography #sgpy_biodivercity #nature_brilliance #singaporewildlife #wildlifesingapore #canonsg #visualofasia #euploeaphaenaretacastelnaui #kingcrowbutterfly

Here is 2 photos of Amathusia phidippus, also known as the Palm King, it is a butterfly found in India and Southeast Asia. It belongs to the Satyrinae, a subfamily of the brush-footed butterflies. The Palm King is usually found in the vicinity of coconut palm (Cocos nucifera) groves. The caterpillar feeds on the leaves of the coconut palm. Given the nature of the species, it is likely that other palms, e.g. Oil Palm and other species of Palmae may also be host plants to the caterpillars of the Palm King. 1st time seen 1. #palmking #insectlover #insectmacro #insectbeauty #butterflyphotography #butterflyofasia #insectphotography #macrophotography #macro #natureporn #naturelover #natureseekers #natureshots #iganimalkingdom #butterflyofinstagram #butterflyofmalaysia #asiawildlife #natgeowild #naturephotography #natgeoexplore #nature_ig #naturebeauty #natgeoasia #insectphotography #biodivercity #nature_brilliance #malaysiawildlife #wildlifephotography #canonsg #visualofasia

Our debut documentary β€˜Cocooned’ reveals the @natural_history_museum Spanish moon moth collection, most of which are over 100 years old! A unusually old collection for such an iconic insect..... This is a photo of the collection being transferred and rearranged into newer drawers shortly after us filming, better for storage - one of the duties of a NHM curator volunteer! πŸ¦‹πŸ™‹β€β™€οΈ #lepidoptera #entomologist #insectbeauty #butterflycollection #mothcollection #thenaturalhistorymuseum Β© Trustees of the Natural History Museum, London [2017].

Trying to like the spider. More spiderweb beauty taken this summers morning. Surprising to wake up to this when we are expecting a very hot weekend. #spiderwebbeauty #joyofnature #iphonephotography #dewonaweb #dewonasumersmor #mornigntonpeninsula #insectbeauty
A nutty proboscis on this hawk moth!!! (Cechenena pollux) You may have heard the recent news that proboscises of early butterflies and moths are now believed to have evolved before flowering plants... So what were they used for before probing for nectar?... πŸŒΊπŸ€” #lepidoptera #entomologist #naturalcuriosities #insectbeauty #butterflycollection #mothcollection #thenaturalhistorymuseum Β© Trustees of the Natural History Museum, London [2017].

Look at this moth!!! πŸ¦‹πŸ¦‹πŸ¦‹ This is Hayesiana triopus, a day-flying hawk moth which was collected in Nepal in 1989 and now housed in the Natural History Museum, London. This species has very rapid flight, similar to the famous hummingbird hawk moth. #lepidoptera #entomologist #insectbeauty #butterflycollection #mothcollection #thenaturalhistorymuseum Β© Trustees of the Natural History Museum, London [2017].
