buggy beauties

I'm taking a break from my marathon of cleaning and Pawn Stars (thank you Netflix) to share with you guy my love of buggy pictures. I absolutely love bright colorful photos of bugs. These are some favorites I've come across while on tumblr and pintrest (and unfortunately since I found them through these sites, I don't have the sources. If anyone knows the sources, please let me know!).

Insects are absolutely fascinating and gorgeous. I met this cicada on my way to school the other day and snapped a couple of my own (significantly less impressive) bug photos.

So colorful! He had just come out of his shell (I totally used to collect those shells when I was a kid). He was still there by the lamp post when I was leaving school, only he had moved onto the sidewalk. I was shocked to find him hanging out in the same area hours after I first sighted him. I couldn't stand to leave him in such a risky position, vulnerable to so many stamping feet, so I picked the little guy up and released him into a little collection of trees. Happy ending!

P.S. I'm using Blogger's new interface and it's weird! I'm not sure how I feel about it. What do you guy's think?

P.P.S I'm keeping up with 30 Days of Lists just fine! But I haven't made any pretty enough lists to share yet. I keep seeing some of the most beautiful lists floating around. It's puts mine to shame! I need to step up my listing game.


  1. Bugs are so gross but so beautiful at the same time.

  2. You're like me... I think bug's are beautiful but only because they are so very weird looking. Those are some awesome photos, and I love your Cicada one! I risked my life to take a photo of a Bee on my Peach tree the other day. I really should have gone back inside and changed my lens but the opportunity was right there!

    I'm looking forward to seeing your lists - they can tell you so much about a person. I think whatever you have will be more than fine! You have obvious art skills!

    Enjoy the rest of your week :)

  3. There amazing photos, and well done you, I'm sure the bugs will repay you one day by making sure you don't get trampled on something either haha =)

  4. @Let It Be Raw, I think the grossness is part of the beauty (;

    @Kaisha, I want to see your bee picture! There's something really cute about a bee in a peach tree...perhaps the rhyming? And I don't think I'm putting my artistic skills to use with the lists, that's the problem haha.

    @Cherry Neko, I hope I am saved by bugs one day!

  5. Bugs simultaneously fascinate and repulse me. I love the bright colors they often feature, but I have to admit that they can't blink (in many cases if not all) and show no emotional responses in their facial features really creeps me out. The other day I was stared down by the largest female praying mantis I have ever seen. She rotated her head to follow my passing, and just started me down. It kinda freaked me out!
