I don't give one single shit about plants. Fuck you.

im honestly so sorry for you for all the absolute joy and surprise you’re missing out on by refusing to allow the weirdness of plants even mildly into ur heart tbh…..cant even look at a tree and momentarily appreciate the fact that its just a weird accidental totem pole literally building itself out of the ground while eating the sun and everyone just accepts it as normal….. like get well soon buddy……

Found this guy outside our living room window. He is very big (almost as big as a quarter). I live in Northern Kentucky and have never seen anything like this. Can you help identify him?


WOAH this fly is HUUGEEE! Pretty sure this is a fly in family Tabanidae (Deer and Horse Flies)[link], due to size, antennae, mouthparts, and head shape. Also, these things get big.

I have not seen too many of these flies, but the two I have are this beauty from Malawi:

And this jerk in east Texas who bit me and scared off the carpenter bee who was making out with my shirt:

I think these ones are the deer flies because the horseflies seem to look a little different based on what’s in bugguide, but I am NOT good with my flies so this is the best I can do for now!

Also, I believe you have a female. Male flies tend to have heads that are basically just all eyes, but the females will have space in between their eyes (and they’ll be more rounded in the center of their faces).

That second yellow fly is a (wait for it….)

Yellow Fly! (Yes that is the common name)

Despite being small and super cool looking, these dudes are considered the most aggressive fly in Florida (and maybe elsewhere in the US.)

I got bit by one on the toe when I was there! 

Genus: Diachlorus

YES thank you

What jerks

Um, EXCUSE me?????
Somebody climbed INSIDE the bird feeder to steal seeds that did NOT belong to them, and had THE NERVE to continue pigging out while a HUMAN was standing RIGHT THERE????

im not 100% on how to sex the stink bugs, but i think the bigger one is female and the smaller one is male?

the smaller one likes to look over the eggs more

so if im correct that would be the male?

Smaller is male, yes. Examples (photos not mine because I’m not this rude):

Green stink bugs. Female on left (you can see her… uh… …) (Source [link])

Dusky stink bugs. Female on left. (Source [link])

Soldier bugs in action (Source [link])

Typically, female arthropods are larger because they have to hold A TON OF EGGS. The parenting behavior you’re seeing is very interesting! Seems like they’re trying to protect the eggs from getting attacked.

Scoundrel.

Y’all haven’t smelled anything until a GIANT BEETLE POOPS ON YOU. I swear I smelled like legions of porta potties were distilled into a special “just-for-me” Eau de Scarabée fragrance that I was forced to wear the rest of the night. Like, imagine the grossest subway elevator possible and make it smell worse, and then imagine you had to take a whiff every time you wanted to photograph something. Rude.

Okay so, today while looking for ducks, a GIANT beetle larva (it had to have been something like a leaf beetle but it was massive) scurried out from the bushes and I petted him a bit to slow him down for photos. He ended up crawling into my hoodie sleeve, and when I tried to lift him up he got SO SCARED he pooped in my sleeve a little. Super tiny baby poop though.

IT WAS THE WORST SMELLING THING EVER—WORSE THAN A SEWAGE TREATMENT PLANT and yes I’ve been to one don’t ask.

Thanks, Canada

How RUDE

But to be fair I yell at the moon to shut up when it shines into my window and I can’t sleep. What an asshole.
