Friday 5: Adorable arthropods

I have insect and spider shots that are better than some of these. But these are the cutest. Yes, cutest. Even people who aren't me, my son, or my buggy friends have awwwed at a few bugs now and then.

Praying mantis

Hey there! Be my friend? And feed me live flies?


He probably sucks at hide and seek.

Fiery skipper

Seriously, don't you just want to pet him?

Pallid-winged grasshopper

Grouchily adorable.

Jumping spider

If I didn't kind of hate the word, I'd squee here. Tiny cute spider! It was my writing muse for an afternoon.

Back to regularly scheduled intelligent nature blogging this evening. Oooh, and a bonus peekaboo damselfly:

Simply "Adorable!"
You should be working with people who have entomophobia (I just looked into the dictionary to be sure...)

I don't like creepy crawly things, but these really are cute.
