Busy busy busy today…so look at these lovely butterflies gettin’ it on.

This incredible photo of  Apollo (Papilionidae) butterflies is from Angela Wolf.

This is an IUCN Red List endangered species, so it’s good to see some potential reproduction!

  1. I read this and immediately thought of you!

    I particularly liked “the ghost slug is carnivorous and kills earthworms at night with powerful, blade-like teeth, sucking them in like spaghetti.”

    I can just see an old slug taking a young one aside: “Heh, come over here, kid, learn something…”

  2. I didn’t think slugs could possibly get worse–but now they kill earthworms? Eek!

  3. And here’s another bug that has entomologists mystified.

    It turned up at the Natural History Museum in London, where you’d think someone would be able to identify it. But no, it remains a Mystery Bug.

  4. Ooh, in-sex!
