  • 樹液に飛来した『ヒオドシチョウ』✨
この時期羽化したばかりの個体をよく見かけるが、この後は春まで出会ったことが無い不思議な蝶である!

  • Cuckoo Wasp (Emerald Wasp)Swipe➡️
•
•
•
Commonly known as cuckoo wasps or emerald wasps, is a group of parasitoid or kleptoparasitic wasps often highly sculptured, with brilliant metallic colours created by structural colouration. 
The color is actually produced by light refracting through open spaces between six layers of cuticle in the wasps’ exoskeletons.
They are always solitary.

The term "cuckoo wasp" refers to the cuckoo-like way in which wasps in the family lay eggs in the nests of unrelated host species. 
They first find bees and wasps that are in the process of digging burrows and dragging paralyzed prey into their nests as food for their own young. Female cuckoo wasps then hide nearby to watch the burrow and either try to hitch a ride on the paralyzed prey as it’s being dragged into the burrow or else wait until the host flies off and then slip inside. Despite their caution, cuckoo wasps are frequently caught in the act of sneaking in, but their oddly pitted exoskeletons protect them from the stings and bites of their hosts. The undersurface of the cuckoo wasp’s midsection is cupped so the wasp can tuck in its legs and curl into a tight ball (like a sowbug or armadillo) to protect its body. Host bees or wasps then have no other option but to grab the balled-up cuckoo wasp in their jaws and carry it outside the burrow to evict it. The unharmed cuckoo wasp simply turns around and tries to get into the burrow again.

  • Hope everyone have observed #pupae of various #insects such as #butterfly 😍🦋...but have u ever come across a Golden one!😳..I hv presented u all wid this gorgeous golden pupa of a butterfly☺️❤️
.
.These shiny, metallic-looking chrysalises are thought to help protect the growing butterfly by fooling potential predators. When light reflects off the chrome-like pupae, other insects might mistake them for drops of water or just beams of light.

  • Leaf-Mimic Katydid (Chondroderella borneensis) is able to flatten its wings to lay low with the leaf. This species is identified by its shoulder markings, weirdly this one only has it only on one side. It is quite contradictory that it is named borneensis but it seems more common here in Singapore that none of my Bornean friends except Chien have photographed one.

  • La Cicindèle champêtre (Cicindela campestris) est une espèce de coléoptères verts, parfois bleuâtres, plus rarement noirâtres. C'est un insecte chasseur redoutable d'une grande rapidité et d'un appétit féroce. Elle attrape ses proies à la course et effectue des vols courts en cas de danger. Sa larve, également carnivore, vit dans un terrier vertical où elle attend qu'une proie passe à sa portée. 😈☠️🦟🕷⚡️🎯⚔️

  • I’m taking an easier day today because ya know... it’s Friday. I’m still keeping a regular business hour schedule with weekends off. But today, I may crack open a fizzy drink and kick off early. I already sat out for lunch on my deck in the warm sun and was greeted by a white moth, a grasshopper, a finch, an ant and an inchworm. So many visitors! 
Here’s the meanings of these various insects if you see one today: 
Banana slug - enjoying life, taking one's time, abundance
Ant - community, discipline, endurance
Moth - awareness, transitions, discernment, finding your own light
Dragonfly - beautiful balance, releasing old habits, freedom
Beetle - rebirth, trust in the process, persistence
Butterfly - major transformations, joy, gentleness, change in life
Grasshopper - trusting your own instincts and rhythms, taking chances, intuition
Ladybug - manifestation, charm, communication, prosperity
Fly - journey not the destination, strength, courage, independence
Praying Mantis - calmness, meditation, creativity, patience
Woolley Bear - weather prediction, longevity, protection, cycles
Firefly - life force, guidance, understanding
Caterpiller - transformation, perfect timing, preparedness
Bee - productivity, empowerment, agility
Mosquito - art of timing, progression, rest, revitalization
Spider - balance, gentleness, strength, creative manifestation

What’s your favorite insect? I love dragonflies, preying mantis’, ladybugs, fireflies and inchworms! 
Happy Friday ❤️ .

  • Today I've been working on a new beetle, a common 'Cockchafer' you might know it by one of its many other names, which including: 'May bug', 'Billy witch', 'Summer beetle' and 'Doodlebug'.
. 
Then while walking my dog this afternoon one stopped by to thank me for drawing her, she wished me well and flew on her way. Such a nice beetle.
. 
Any one else seen one yet?

  • I finally managed to get a good stack of a daddy longlegs spider 🕷.
The skin is like shiny greasy leather and therefore hard to capture.

The daddy longlegs spider (Pholcus phalangioides) is probably one of the most known spiders. It lives in dark places like caves or cellars. These spiders are no Weavers (Opiliones). _____________________________________________________________
Nach einigen Fehlschlägen habe ich endlich einen vernünftigen Stack erstellen können. Die glänzende, lederartige Struktur der Oberfläche dieser Spinne machen es einem sehr schwer.

Umgangssprachlich werden diese langbeinigen Spinnen fälschlicherweise als Weberknechte (Opiliones) bezeichnet (das habe ich selbst noch bis vor kurzem ebenso😋). Diese Große Zitterspinne (Pholcus phalangioides) ist im Gegensatz zum Weberknecht eine echte Webspinne (Araneae). .

  • Carpenter bee, painted with @zvezdicaperlica 's beautiful shimmering blue and red (ad/free sample) - swipe left to see it glow in the light 😍
More paintings with her handmade watercolors will follow soon, I'm sure 😊
If you want to support a small business owner and like to paint, @zvezdicaperlica would be happy to take your order, she also ships to other countries! 
We have more and more of these bees in Vienna now already (probably thanks to climate change?)
I remember seeing tons of them on lavender in southern France, the air was vibrating with their humming sound and their wings were sparkling in the sun. They are so beautiful ❤🐝🐝🐝

The Devil’s flower mantis is an extraordinary insect from East African with a carnivorous diet of flying insects such as moths, butterflies, and flies.⁣
⁣
To defend themselves they rear their arms up into the air, revealing bright flashy colors and appearing larger than they are to hopefully intimidate predators. Mantises range in size from 1cm to 5+ inches in length; this species growing upwards of 5 inches in size.⁣

  • In the Borneo rainforest, a leaf isn't always what it seems. Many tropical trees and shrubs have pale or reddish young leaves as part of a strategy to deter herbivory: the absence of green chlorophyll reduces their nutritive value. Here, an orange morph leaf-legged katydid (Eulophophyllum lobulatum) mimics this exact foliage type. This insect  has been found to have a variety of colorations ranging from green to yellow and red, an adaptation that probably makes it more difficult for their predators to learn a fixed search image for any particular color. @chienleephotography

  • There seems to be no limit to the variety of cryptic adaptations possessed by insects in tropical rainforests. While the majority of katydids masquerade as leaves, this species (Anaphidna sp.) takes on a different strategy: it rests with its wings raised in the air to mimic a lichen-covered twig. The long filamentous antennae of many insects, which can sometimes betray their camouflage to a predator and are thus often kept tucked away for concealment, are in this species deceptively disguised with bends and kinks. @chienleephotography

  • There seems to be no limit to the variety of cryptic adaptations possessed by insects in tropical rainforests. While the majority of katydids masquerade as leaves, this species (Anaphidna sp.) takes on a different strategy: it rests with its wings raised in the air to mimic a lichen-covered twig. The long filamentous antennae of many insects, which can sometimes betray their camouflage to a predator and are thus often kept tucked away for concealment, are in this species deceptively disguised with bends and kinks. @chienleephotography

  • Working very hard behind the scenes on lots of cuteness for my next update. Like this experiment with @cosclayusa swirly antenna. These antenna are super thin and crazy bendy and strong. I used @avesstudiollc apoxie sculpt to affix the antenna to the body and this is one sturdy fairy! Apoxie sculpt is great for things like this as it’s air dry and crazy strong (I can’t bake plastic pieces-gives off dangerous fumes). I can’t wait to paint it!
