Field day [images]

This is the ninth entry into insect-themed posts on Russia Reviewed. Do you think it’s time to establish a separate blog?

Eastern eyed click beetle.


I was walking through a field and my eyes snapped to this fingernail-sized wolf spider on a clover. Talk about spider senses tingling!


A longhorn beetle taking off.


Thanks for eating my tree, guys. I really appreciate it.


I wasn’t able to identify this caterpillar online. The closest match was a caterpillar native to Australia.


A bumblebee on a flower. There are over 250 known species of bumblebee, so I’m not going to bother with exact identification. But did you know that unlike honeybees, female bumblebees can sting repeatedly?


A daddy longlegs on the same flowering bush, right below the bumblebee.


A moth with tattered wings or a weird new species? You decide!
