lepidoptera

@connorsb found me some garden friends this morning! They are clearly very good at hiding, because they are already in their ~fourth instar. Good thing we have so many tomato plants - I think the plants and the current tomatoes growing will survive with just the two. _ _ _ #manducasexta #caterpillarbuddies #larvae #gardenfriends #insectsofig #lepidopteran #lepidoptera #raisedbeds #mothweek #mothweek2018

Well look what the heatwave dragged in... my Dad caught this in the garden trap back home in Leicester. A Dewick's Plusia of all things! I'm happy for him of course and not jealous in the slightest haha... it's a rare migrant nationally so he is of course rather chuffed to have caught what is a first for Leicestershire. I think this goes under 'cons' of moving so far away from home 😜🤩 #moth #migrant #insect #lepidoptera #nature #ukwildlife #mothtrapping

Sommerfugl - Butterfly - Fjäril - Perhonen - Papillon - Hahai - Mariposa - Schmetterling - Farfalla - Liblikas - Lepidoptera «Sommerfuglene representerer en relativt stor orden innen insektene. I artsantall er det den fjerde største ordenen, med rundt 175 000 arter på verdensbasis og over 2 200 arter i Norge. Navnet Lepidoptera har gresk opprinnelse og betyr ”skjellvinger” (lepidos, skjell, og pteron, vinge). Skjel­lene er omdannede hår som dekker vingemembranen som takstein på et tak» (artsdatabanken.no). #summer2018 #summer #sommerfugl #butterfly #butterflies #lepidoptera #norge #norway #insects #beautifulinsects #nature #naturelovers

A pair of drinker moths spent the night on a gatepost near a pond. The male is the smaller and darker. The caterpillar is said to drink the dew from leaves. Keep hydrated - find a drinking partner! #moths #lepidoptera #lepsnap #entomology #insects #caterpillars #wetlands #drinkermoth #nature #wildlife #ecology

Ein Erpelschwanz-Raufußspinner, er gehört zu den Zahnspinnern. Leider auch ein Falter der in NRW auf der Roten Liste steht, Vorwarnstufe. Er überwintert als Puppe zwischen zusammengesponnenen Blättern. #erpelschwanzraufußspinner #closteracurtula #nordeifel #entomology #pocket_insects #kings_insects #meinwildergarten #kings_macro #igclubbutterfly #igclub_butterfly #lepidoptera #nachtfalter #moth #insect #insekt #insectmagazine #kelebek #mariposa #fjäril #vlinder #zahnspinner #schmetterling #butterfly
