SUBTLE INSECT BLOG.

My name is josh and I'm a amateur entomologist. I've been collecting insects since i was ten years old and don't plan on stopping. If your have any questions ask me, and if you ever want to meet up and collect bugs hell yeah. I live in Idaho currently and my Snapchat is: skymoose :) feel free to say hi!

This week I made an animated chart of butterflies! These are all butterflies that you can find throughout North America, and I picked the 42 that I thought were the most colorful and unique. 

You can check out the full sized GIF here or pick up a poster for your room here :)

Thorn bug (Umbonia spinosa)

Scientists are baffled by this unusual creature, but believe it to be closely related to cicades. Umbonia spinosa use their beaks to pierce plant steams to feed upon their sap. photo credits: medioambiente, ntsavanna
