Cool Bug Thread

This site has too many vertebrates. So here's a thread dedicated to insects, spiders, scorpions and the like. Post cool pictures, talk about how cool they are, etc. You can even share some of that questionably wholesome poetry you dedicated to me and my brethren last night. I'll start this off with the full version of my profile picture. He was a shy fellow.

A darling little katydid I saw on the road once. A fat caterpillar That same caterpillar with a shoe for size comparison. This picture was taken several years ago, and I still have those shoes. I think maybe I should get some new ones. An adult potato beetle. Juvenile potato beetles. Yes, those brown things are all potato beetle feces. This is why insecticides exist. Wet bee. Not in the Purrlurr sense. Butterfly They hold still for me when they are dead. Mayfly on a peony.

Here's some more. A brilliant little green beetle. A friend helped me determine that this one is probably a flatheaded hardwood borer. Or some sort of tree borer anyway. My cousin. Cicada. A ladybug on my skirt. Maybe it was actually an asian beetle, but I choose to believe it is a ladybug. Spider. Dragonfly. Dragonfly silhouette. Butterfly on rose. Those are the best smelling roses ever, by the way. THICC hips too. You can't see too well, but there were hundreds of these butterflies flying around that plant. I was watching them, and so was a man in the window, and we noticed one another after a bit and both pointed at the plant while grinning. It was wholesome.

I would have had a PTSD reaction to the brilliant beetle's metallic green color and stamped on it. Luckily you were there to protect this very non-invasive creature from misaimed wrath.

Indeed. That would have been tragic.

All these images are broken for me except the spider that I didn't want to see.

What a garbage thread.

Tried my best to emulate a Google image searched cricket, think it turned out alright.

This here is beautiful. He's missing an antenna though.

I thought it was meant to have been chopped off in a sword fight.

Cricket is actually incorrect on this one, the sword carrying cricket is a one-antennaed variety. I saw them in a documentary once.

All the images are working for me. Like this one better than the bird one.

Yay, I'm glad you like them. I have a bunch more I might post later then. I was planning to do all the grasshoppers at once, that the variety may be appreciated better.
Turns out I take a lot of pictures of insects.
