Paper Wasps
•
Paper wasps are vespid wasps that gather fibers from dead wood and plant stems, which they mix with saliva, and use to construct water-resistant nests made of gray or brown papery material. Some types of paper wasps are also sometimes called umbrella wasps, due to the distinctive design of their nests.

Longhorn Beetles
•
The longhorn beetles (Cerambycidae; also known as long-horned or longhorn beetles or longicorns) are a cosmopolitan family of beetles, typically characterized by extremely long antennae, which are often as long as or longer than the beetle's body. The scientific name of this beetle family goes back to a figure from Greek mythology: after an argument with nymphs, the shepherd Cerambus was transformed into a large beetle with horns.

Fulgoridae - Lantern Flies
•
The family Fulgoridae is a large group of hemipteran insects, especially abundant and diverse in the tropics, containing over 125 genera worldwide. They are mostly of moderate to large size, many with a superficial resemblance to Lepidoptera due to their brilliant and varied coloration. Various genera and species (especially the genera Fulgora and Pyrops) are sometimes referred to as lanternflies or lanthorn flies, though they do not emit light.

Web-weaving spiders
•
Web-weaving spiders have two or three claws at the tip of each leg that they use to swing from strand to strand without getting stuck in the sticky part of their web. Additionally, a spider’s body has a special oily substance that keeps it from getting stuck in its web.

Jumping spiders have very well-developed breathing system. Both tracheal system and book lungs are developed and they use both the systems for breathing. This is known as bimodal breathing.

They are powerfully built, bristly flies with a short, stout proboscis enclosing the sharp, sucking hypopharynx. The name "robber flies" reflects their notoriously aggressive predatory habits; they feed mainly or exclusively on other insects and as a rule they wait in ambush and catch their prey in flight. • #robberfly #predator #prey #naturelove #naturelovers #nature #insect #insects #fact #facts #world #savetheplanet #earth #forest #entomology #naturehike #naturelovers #natureisbeautiful #nature #naturewalk #naturephotograph #dayshots #insectsofinstagram #photooftheday #fauna #natureshooters

Unlike females, males possess plumose hairs, colored or iridescent hairs (particularly pronounced in the peacock spiders), front leg fringes, structures on other legs, and other, often bizarre, modifications. These characteristics are used in a courtship "dance" in which the colored or iridescent parts of the body are displayed. In addition to the display of hairs, jumping spiders perform complex sideling, vibrational, or zigzag movements to attract females. If receptive to the male, the female will assume a passive, crouching position. It has also recently been discovered that many males have auditory signals as well. These amplified sounds presented to the females resemble buzzes or drum rolls. In some species, the female may also vibrate her palps or abdomen. The male will then extend his front legs towards the female to touch her. If the female remains receptive, the male will climb on the female's back and inseminate her with his palps. • #peacockspider #jumpingspider #spider #arthropods #naturelove #naturelovers #nature #insect #insects #fact #facts #world #savetheplanet #earth #forest #entomology #naturehike #naturelovers #natureisbeautiful #nature #naturewalk #naturephotograph #dayshots #insectsofinstagram #photooftheday #fauna #natureshooters

Ornithoptera euphorion, the Cairns birdwing, is a species of birdwing butterfly endemic to north-eastern Australia, and is Australia's largest endemic butterfly species. Other common names include Cooktown birdwing and northern birdwing. The names Cairns and Cooktown in its common name reference the Australian cities in the region where this butterfly is found.

Long Tailed Skipper
•
The Skippers are a family of butterflies, the Hesperiidae. They are named after their quick, darting flight.

They are a bit different from other butterflies, which are classified in the superfamily Papilionoidea. Skippers have their antennae clubs hooked backward like a crochet. The other butterflies have club-like tips to their antennae. Skippers also have generally stockier bodies than the other two groups, with stronger wing muscles.

It has thread- or plume-like antenna with no knobs at the end. While most fall into the "working class," some species do have colorful patterns on their wings and go about their business during the day. The Butterfly The butterfly, when at rest, holds it wings in an extended upward spread or in a vertical position above the body. It has antenna that terminate in knobs. The Skipper The skipper, when not engaged in its darting, erratic flight, typically holds its short wings, much like a butterfly, in a near vertical position above its moth-like body. It may hold its forward and hind wings at slightly different angles. It has antenna that terminate in knobs that often have fine hook-like extensions. Skippers come in a broad range of colors and patterns, sometimes with considerable variation among individuals within a species. • #skipper #butterfly #naturelove #naturelovers #nature #insect #insects #fact #facts #world #savetheplanet #earth #forest #entomology #naturehike #naturelovers #natureisbeautiful #nature #naturewalk #naturephotograph #dayshots #insectsofinstagram #photooftheday #fauna #natureshooters

Acorn Weevils
•
Curculio is a genus of weevils belonging the family Curculionidae and subfamily Curculioninae.  Members of the genus are commonly referred to as acorn weevils or nut weevils as they infest the seeds of trees such as oaks and hickories. The adult female weevil bores a tiny hole in the immature nut to lay her eggs, which then hatch into legless grubs. In the fall, the grubs bore holes through the shells from the inside to emerge into the soil where they may live for a year or two before maturing into adults.

The name comes from their remarkable resemblance to leaves and other plants of their environment and from the fact that they often "hop" for quick transportation in a similar way to that of grasshoppers. However, planthoppers generally walk very slowly so as not to attract attention. Distributed worldwide, all members of this group are plant-feeders, though surprisingly few are considered pests. • #planthopper #transportation #naturelove #naturelovers #nature #insect #insects #fact #facts #world #savetheplanet #earth #forest #entomology #naturehike #naturelovers #natureisbeautiful #nature #naturewalk #naturephotograph #dayshots #insectsofinstagram #photooftheday #fauna #natureshooters

Jumping Spiders
•
Jumping spiders are generally diurnal, active hunters. Their well-developed internal hydraulic system extends their limbs by altering the pressure of body fluid (hemolymph) within them. This enables the spiders to jump without having large muscular legs like a grasshopper. Most jumping spiders can jump several times the length of their bodies. When a jumping spider is moving from place to place, and especially just before it jumps, it tethers a filament of silk (or 'dragline') to whatever it is standing on to protect itself if the jump should fail. Should it fall, for example if the prey shakes it off, it climbs back up the silk tether.
