godspeed you tiny emperors
Nature is amazing!!
This is good. Insect wings are amazing–especially beetle wings (because they are SECRETS). Allow me to present:
Tropisternus lateralis (A water scavenger beetle) [link to iNat obs]
Common Eastern Firefly [link to iNat obs]
Seven-spotted Lady Beetle [link to iNat obs], recently emerged from pupa. They have to hold their wings out and unfolded while they dry/harden. The spots don’t darken until later.
