At first i thought i won’t invade their privacy but then i thought isn’t it important for humans to realize even flies have lives of their own and that we are all the same on this planet. So here they are. They have forsaken intimacy for the greater good. #fliesmating #flies #insect #insects #insectsmating #matinginsects #matingflies #insectsofinstagram #fliesofinstagram #insectphotography #naturephotography #naturelove #naturelovers #natureisbeautiful #nature_good #weareone #oneplanet

Not the best photo as I took it quickly on my phone outside a garage at work and he’s camouflaged into the brick work but I was very happy to see this vapourer moth or rusty tussock... whichever, I’ve always called it a vapourer (Orgyia antiqua) 🦋 yesterday in Saltney 😁
I’ve only saw 1 before and that was as a caterpillar around 1998 in Caithness, Scotland 🏴󠁧󠁢󠁳󠁣󠁴󠁿🐛
I took the caterpillar home and reared it and released it as an adult (I must have been like 8 years old or something) and that fella turned out to be a male too, luckily...
The females are easily told apart as they are wingless. They look like a plump body with legs, and they spend their adult life waiting for the males to detect their scent pheromones with their sensitive antenna 👃🏼📡 Once mated she will lay her eggs on the same cocoon from which she hatched out of 🥚🥚🥚.

I was shooting this European Wool Carder Bee when it started to wake up. This is a single, un-cropped, frame taken hand held. Canon 80D, MP-E 65mm macro lens, and an MT-26EX-RT.

This is a Malaise Trap
🐝
These traps are a little more advanced than your typical pan traps or sweep netting, but are excellent in catching flying insects, such as Hymenoptera and Diptera (not so much Coleoptera or Odonata). 🐝
Here's how they work:
1) An insect flies into the mesh and lands.
2) Their instincts then tell the insect to crawl upwards.
3)They then crawl into a chamber that funnels the insects to the top.
4) At the top, the insects crawl into a bottle and fall in, where they can then be collected.

Battus philenor, the Pipevine Swallowtail🦋
🐛
In the second video, you can see a common butterfly behavior known as “puddling”. When puddling, butterflies seek nutrient-rich sources in moist substances like mud, carrion and decaying organic matter. From these fluids, they gather salts and amino acids; in this particular case, they are lapping up the the salty sweat water from the palm of a hand. 🐛
Have you seen this behavior before? Let me know in the comments below!!

Glasswing Butterfly - Greta Oto
•
Greta oto is a species of brush-footed butterfly and member of the subfamily Danainae, tribe Ithomiini, and subtribe Godyridina. It is known by the common name glasswing butterfly for its unique transparent wings that allow it to camouflage without extensive coloration. In Spanish speaking regions, it may also be referred to as espejitos, meaning "little mirrors" because of its transparent wings.
