In the Amazon, it’s not uncommon to see groups of colorful butterflies fluttering around turtles basking along the river. This is because they drink the turtles’ tears—an invaluable source of salt for the herbivorous butterflies.
This is so cool
Mantis and moth stickers! I’ll be selling these at SMASH this year. :) I couldn’t resist making cute lil buggies.
Took a break from vaccuming water out of my car and saw a group of these guys in my front yard.
More like tiny erect demon penis thrusting its way out of the soil.

I feel like I just watched a step by step pokemon evolution
Pokemon from the darkest pit of hell maybe.
and then there is this thing.
THE LARVAE (AND ADULT FEMALE) OF THE TRILOBITE BEETLE
The trilobite [beetle] genus (Duliticola) belongs to the family Lycidae, commonly known as net-winged beetles.
This family is a pretty interesting one, because many of its species display huge physical differences between their males and their females. Trilobite beetles are no exception. While the females are easily recognisable – that incredible form is retained from when they were larvae [see Wikipedia neoteny] – the males look entirely different. They pretty much just look like plain old beetles, with long, winged bodies and a pair of thick antennae.
Cat doesn’t know what to do with the butterfly that flew on its paw.
I can’t breathe I’m laughing too hard
