Besides liking dinosaurs, I also like entomology and things that go bump in the night!  I thought I'd share some photographs I've taken of some creepy crawlers from the past couple of years!  I hope they make your skin crawl!  LOL, get it?!   (J/K.....  I think?)  Twisted Evil

Thank you LeeAnn. Its amazing what you can find in your own back yard. Most of these mantis photos were taken within a few hundred feet of my home! I find them to be such fascinating creatures!!!

I'll be posting pictures of different insects too!

Glad you enjoy them! Very Happy

One more group for today!  I'll let these all sink in before introducing another group crawlies that are probably more common around you than you think.  Wink

Praying mantises! I love those! <3 My first experience was in Spain, got one on my hand and it looked so cool! (A wild one.) Second was also in Spain, as I saved one from a small pool. Poor thing was exhausted from trying not to drown. He/she made it though Very Happy

Seeing baby mantises with nest must be a treasure to find.
How are they called? Larvae?

Thank you for saving that poor creature.  I also love mantises!  I thought I was the only one that saved insects trapped in a swimming pool.   cheers

Mantis young are called nymphs.  Larvae is the title used for the young of butterflies, moths, beetles, etc.  Nymphs resemble their adult counterparts while larvae do not and go through a cycle called complete metamorphosis.  (Egg, larvae, pupa, and adult stage)

Thank you Susanne!  Watching them hatch is indeed a sight to behold! I'll be posting different insects later on.  Very Happy

I try to do my best :3 I know most girls scream and don't even try to touch an insect, where as I look fascinated at them.
Ok, spiders creep me out sometimes.
But when one found in the house, I move it to the shed, so it can hunt and do his/her own thing there XD

Yay! Learned something new today! Thanks Very Happy

(Oh, I know it is your photography topic. But I also photograph insects where I can.
Maybe you can look here: [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] It is just one folder, I have more folders with other photographs :3)[/quote]

Beautiful insect photos Night Lioness! Thanks for sharing those! I enjoy seeing images through another's perspective! Applause

Curious what insect laid that cluster of eggs on that leaf?

PS: I also like your cat photos! My daughter loves cats and there was one pic that looks like one of ours!

Wonderful pictures indeed! I love insects and all the miniature world. I used to play with real insects as a kid never hurting them, of course. Praying mantis was surely my favorite insect although I also loved to play with non insects like little scorpions, centipeds, etc. When alienigene creatures are based in arthropods, I find it fascinating and it really gives me a much more "realistic" view of what it could be than when their just humanoids. :) alien

Thank you Roger!

Praying Mantis and Cicadas are my favorite insects! I know some people have raised Mantises and take up a hobby in that. Since I can find them less than a hundred feet from my house, I prefer to observe them naturally.

When I was a child, I used to go hunting from mantises to see how many I can find and tried positioning prey near them for them to eat! In the winter, I would also go looking for their egg cases and count how many I could find on weeds and bushes I still do that now! In fact, this winterr I have already found about 30-40 in a small overgrown field behind my home. Once my leg recovers, I plan on doing another egg count to see if I can even more!

Although most of these pictures make me throw up inside my mouth a little, I can't stop watching. Twisted Evil

Beautiful photos.
I find them very educational, but half of the time I have no idea what insect I'm looking at.
But I really would like to know.
Would it be possible for you to name some of them?
