In stark contrast to yesterday's post, here is a very cheerful looking fella, and another shot from my holiday in the south of France. Although dragonflies aren't exactly solely native to the region, they are certainly abundant, with scores of them around the pool daily. It would be rude not to commemorate one with a photo 😁 #wholelottabugs  #insects_macro  #insects  #bbcearth  #insect   #insectsofinstagram  #kings_insects  #insect_perfection  #macrophotography  #dragonfly  #macro  #macro_perfection  #nature  #onceupon_a_macro  #turklikeben_macro  #only_macro_captures  #naturephotography  #macro_mood  #insects_of_our_world  #mat_macro_dragonflies  #insect_perfection  #macroworld_tr  #insectphotography  #top_macro  #insectagram  #raw_macro  #macro_highlight  #beautiful_insects_japan  #arthropod_perfection  #invert_macro  @bbcearth 

These Mantises are the kindest, most loving species. I love the way they turn their head toward me and interact like we are best friends. “Rippy” was the first to become an adult. I’m still waiting for her other 4 siblings to take their final molt from subadult. She is a hierodula patellifera. My favorite! 💚

I have been dreaming of catching a dragonfly for years, and today I finally caught my very first one. It is so beautiful! I was determined to catch one this summer, so I continued to bug hunt daily with my net. We boated over to an island in the lake. We hiked around the island and I found this little pond that had formed from the lake draining. I knew Dragonflies would be there since they love to eat mosquitos and lay their eggs in or around water. I was lucky enough to catch two! Dragonflies are amazing creatures!

When shooting flowers, I will almost always see tiny bits of movement, and sure enough, ants. Hundreds of times their height from the ground. On the outside of a flower or on tree branches. I never get tired of seeing their tireless forms trudging all over the earth.

"Happiness is a butterfly, which when pursued, is always just beyond your grasp, but which, if you will sit down quietly, may alight upon you." -Nathaniel Hawthorne _______________________ #monarchbutterfly  #canonrebelt6  #photography  #insectphotography  #garden  #lepidoptera  #flowers  #earthoutdoors  #insect  #insectsofinstagram 

There are three kinds of ants in a colony: The queen, the female workers, and males. The queen and the males have wings, while the workers don’t have wings. The queen is the only ant that can lay eggs. The male ant’s job is to mate with future queen ants and they do not live very long afterwards. Once the queen grows to adulthood, she spends the rest of her life laying eggs! Depending on the species, a colony may have one queen or many queens. Ant colonies also have soldier ants that protect the queen, defend the colony, gather or kill food, and attack enemy colonies in search for food and nesting space. If they defeat another ant colony, they take away eggs of the defeated ant colony. When the eggs hatch, the new ants become the "slave" ants for the colony. Some jobs of the colony include taking care of the eggs and babies, gathering food for the colony and building the anthills or mounds. 🐜

It's almost 12am, so it's time for an unbiased opinion: People called outrage the moment the Notre Dame burned, yet the Amazon rainforest has been burning down for the past 3 weeks and people aren't giving a shit about it and there's barely any media coverage on it till recently?? Nice to see where priorities are. #canon  #photography  #canonphotography  #canon200d  #canonsl2  #canon_photos  #photooftheday  #amateurphotography  #amateurphotographer  #composition  #art  #focus  #exposure  #canon100mm  #canon100mmmacro  #canonmacro  #macro  #macrophotography  #insect  #insectphotography

Spent some time with kids from Atlanta’s Oak Grove Elementary last week as they practiced counting pollinators in the school garden in preparation for the Great Georgia Pollinator Census. Around 1000 Georgia schools are participating in the event today and tomorrow.

Tak tenhle "drobeček" nám zavítal na naši zahradu. 🐞 Nosorožík kapucínek (Oryctes nasicornis) Jedná se o 2,5–4 cm velkého brouka. V Česku je poměrně vzácný. Jméno má podle charakteristického rohu. Samci používají roh v zápasech se svými soupeři. #kapucinek  #nosorozik  #treasure  #beatle  #insect  #insectphotography  #photography  #nature  #villagelife  #amazing  #light  #fujixt1  #fuji  #czechnature  #czech  #summer 

More bee spam you say? Ah yes I bee-lieve I can accommodate that. 🐝 Swipe ➡ to see the uncropped photo

Look at this little bee boy working hard, and a mean fly tried to check him! 🐝🐝🐝 Did you know honey bees are the main pollinators, not bumble bees? . . . . . . . . #savethebees  #bees  #animals  #insects  #nature  #nature_captures  #insectsofinstagram  #insectphotography
