Collection Artists and married couple SUN YUAN and PENG YU, made their name with installations that were deliberately repulsive and even sickening - once forming a “civilisation pillar” from human fat removed in liposuction. I Didn’t Notice What I Am Doing, 2012 is a more cerebral, multipart project centred on the theme of human comparisons and analogies and the idiosyncratic bases on which they often rest. The framed insect specimens acquired by the White Rabbit Collection were part of a large installation that also included skulls, shells, and life-size models of a triceratops and a rhinoceros. Sun Yuan & Peng Yu are two of the six Collection Artists selected for the 2019 Venice Biennale.

New for me today a beetle. The first of many I hope. Also a darker colourway of my hummingbird. I must invest in some new paint colours there are so many amazing beetles to paint. 🎨🖌✏

No caminho pro campo, fotografei esse 'dinossauro', muito fácil de encontrar durante o verão perto de jardins e lagos. As libélulas podem voar numa velocidade de até 50 km por hora e podem capturar outros insetos em pleno voo. Suas habilidades em voar lembram um helicóptero, elas podem pairar no ar e até dar 'ré'. Seus olhos em forma de bola dão a esse animal um excelente campo de visão. Elas vivem poucas semanas enquanto adultas, mas podem passar anos em lagos em sua fase ninfal. Como predadoras são muito importante para o controle do número de insetos e devem ser preservadas pela preservação de seu habitat. 
During summer season, it's easy to find dragonflies surrounding gardens and lakes. This amazing 'dinossaur' might fly at a speed up to 50 km/h and can catch others insects while flying. Their abilities to fly reminds a helicopter that can stop in the air, and their ball-like eyes give them an incredible angle of view. Even though this animal live few weeks as an adult, they may spend years as a nymph in a lake, where they fight to survive as a predator.

Just a whisper of a mantid. Noticed it crawling on my arm after checking on the tadpoles.  I’m thinking this is a larger (Archimantis?) species perhaps. Blends with dead grass quite well. 💚 #entomology #insect #insects #mantis #mantis #prayingmantis #australianinsects #nature #wildlife #love #babymantis

Ok guys, I’ve added color to the insects last night. I don’t feel that great today unfortunately so I probably won’t do much on this. Today is my day of rest. I hope everyone’s having a great day. #incagold #mandala #wipart #wip #floralbouquet #floral #amazonrainforest #botany #botanical #botanicalillustration #botanicallinedrawing #botanicalart #insects #butterflies #beetle #art #artwork #art_spotlight #arte #artsy #illustration #illustragram #watercolor #flowers #drawings #penandink #linework

Cupido minimus (Fuessly, 1775) Small Blue, June 2000, Canon EOS 50E 35mm SLR - image of 35mm slide taken on Samsung S9+ handheld - hopefully a better image than the previous one which I've deleted.

Sphodromantis sp.
Cyprus 🇨🇾
Adult male

He was always the first to stand up for himself and me his moves. So agile and alert! He cheered me up on tough mornings... R.I.P. my precious kung-fu master. 💚

Hiked up Sugarloaf Mountain this weekend and stumbled into a painted lady hangout at the top! I was able to get really close to some. The rain we've gotten in southern California this winter has lead to increased vegetation which leads to more of these butterflies. They're supposed to be migrating north, but the flowery conditions here will have them stick around for a while.

Spring is here!  My mantis from last year left me a present!😊
I hope it survived the -40 weather we had. Wish I had spotted it earlier!

As a lover of butterflies and bugs, I've been a fan of @martamattsson_jewellery for quite sometime.  I haven't posted her work in a while, so I figured I revisited it today. I love her use of insects in a whimsical way, one of my favorites is the second brooch! She is today's featured designer in athousandfacets.tumblr.com

Neppure l'alta #montagna, tra il silenzio e i ghiacciai, è riuscita a sfuggire al dominio e all'impatto dell'uomo. 
I #pesticidi hanno raggiunto ormai anche i ghiacciai alpini, e stanno minacciando gli insetti delle terre alte. 
Uno studio dell’università di Milano-Bicocca ha infatti evidenziato il ruolo dei ghiacciai come accumulatori di contaminanti usati per l’agricoltura in Pianura Padana. /

Not even mountains, with their stillness and glaciers, are free from human impact.
#Pesticides have reached Alpine glaciers, and are threatening the insects they're home to. 
A study by Italian university Milano-Bicocca shows how glaciers are accumulating chemical substances used by agriculture in nearby areas. .

Squirmy life,  hanging by a thread, a single silk thread, a most wondrous protein production—-the caterpillar of a tiger moth I think. The thread which comes spinning fast and strong  out of glands at the tail end  allows the caterpillar to bungie jump from a leaf when attacked by an ant or such and just hang until its safe to reel its self back to the leafy dinner table.  #rainforest  #insects #macro #lepidoptera #caterpillar #nightwalk
