The Bullet Ant (Paraponera clavata), a big reason why hikers in the Amazonian rainforest always proceed with trepidation when stepping off the trail into thick vegetation. One of the largest ants in the world, this species is infamous for its ferocious sting which some consider equivalent in pain to being shot. The ant's sting contains a neurotoxic venom and has been rated by biologists as the only perfect "4+" on the Schmidt Sting Pain Index, making it the most painful of all insect stings. @chienleephotography . . . . . #ecuador #ant #macro_alit #entomology #grikart_macro #hot_macros #insect #amazonrainforest #insectphotography #insects #insectsofinstagram #insects_of_our_world #ip_insects #kings_insects #mimicry #macrolovers #macrophotography #macroworld #macroworld_tr #bulletant #macro_captures #macro_freaks #macro_perfection #macro_spotlight #rainforest #nature_perfection #sting #instainsect #insectagram #insects_macro

Erstmals setzen die Vereinten Nationen in diesem Jahr mit dem #Weltbienentag ein internationales Zeichen gegen die schwindenden Insektenbestände. Doch in den Köpfen der Politiker muss es auch ankommen, denn das Insektensterben ist kein kleines Problem!

The Mother Shipton moth can be seen from May to July in Britain and Ireland. The pale pattern on forewing is said to resemble a witch's face! Found in open grassy sites, such as downland, moorland, and flower-rich hay meadows.

A beautiful photo and description by @texas_photographer Congratulations Norman for being selected for a place in this gallery! 🎉 💚 🎉 • And most of all thank you for sharing your work with us. Be sure to show some support and give this gallery a visit! Tag #insectguru for a chance to be featured. • It's that time of year again! What’s A Skipper? It’s understandable if your first reaction to a long-tailed skipper was, “Is that a butterfly or a moth?” They fly during the day like butterflies, but have some characteristics that seem to set them apart from other butterflies. Scientists have generally compromised by declaring skippers to be a third category, somewhere between butterflies and moths. To the amateur butterfly gardener, though, it makes little difference. To attract long-tailed skippers to your yard, plant something in the legume family, like beans, peas, beggar’s tick, wisteria, etc. If you are having trouble with caterpillars from these butterflies in your vegetable garden, consider planting a separate patch of beans or peas and moving pest caterpillars to these plants instead of killing them outright. Adult butterflies are drawn to small flowers like lantana and zinnias, but will be found on just about any good nectar plant. • #skipper #butterfly #today #insectfact #monday #week #weekend #species #arthropods #fact #facts #insect #insects #insectsofinstagram #nature #natureonly #natureisawesome #insectphoto #natureaddict #naturephotograph #naturelovers #macro #macros

There are more than 20.000 species of leafhoppers that can be found in temperate, sub-tropical and tropical areas around the world. Leafhoppers inhabit forests, grasslands, farms, agricultural fields, backyards and gardens. They are classified as agricultural pest in most parts of the world due to ability to transmit viral and bacterial diseases and produce severe damage on crops. • #leafhopper #today #insectfact #monday #week #weekend #species #arthropods #fact #facts #insect #insects #insectsofinstagram #nature #natureonly #natureisawesome #insectphoto #natureaddict #naturephotograph #naturelovers #macro #macros

Tag #insectguru for a chance to be featured. • This is a very peculiar planthopper by the name of #cladonota #apicalis from the Family #membracidae .The species are very ornamented and have strange body forms, sometimes resembling pieces of branches, leaves, dry fruits or seeds, lichens, bird droppings, etc. There are about 50 described species. Their biology is poorly known.They are masters of mimicry and they blew my mind when I saw them. • #treehopper #today #insectfact #thursday #week #weekend #species #arthropods #fact #facts #insect #insects #insectsofinstagram #nature #natureonly #natureisawesome #insectphoto #natureaddict #natgeo #naturephotograph #naturelovers #macro #macros

Have you ever seen a bee with yellow/orange clumps on its hind legs? Those are the pollen baskets (corbicula) in action! As bees move from flower to flower, they store pollen in these clumps until they return to the hive. They actually rake and then press the pollen grains into place for easy storage. Next time you see a honeybee or bumblebee around, check out their pollen stores!

The bug fair at the Natural History Museum totally blew my mind! Nature is so weird and beautiful. I’m glad I decided to go even though I wasn’t feeling well. I learned so much just by chatting with all the other bug dorks. Did you know... •Japanese beetles (aka fig beetles) aren’t actually blind? It’s a myth! They’re just fat and find it hard to manipulate their flight path. •Only male cicadas make that iconic cicada sound. It comes from their abdomen and it’s a mating call, since they only have two weeks to procreate! •The cool Egyptian scarabs that I like to incorporate into designs are...dung beetles💩Whatever I still love them! Hope to learn more when I go back next year:) 🐛🦋🕷

Hunter in the greens Lynx spider usually occur in either green or yellow color. They also possess spiny structures on their legs which help in easy camouflage. Though the spider in this shot has 6 legs instead of 8, it still managed to trap down a bigger prey! #spider #lynxspider #butterfly #predator #prey #camouflage #green #hunter #trap #insects #insectsofinstagram
