I love the strange insect world just as much as I do reptiles and other animals. Certain insects like this praying mantis I had found yesterday, look to be curious little critters that seem to possess a bit of personality!

A tiny sweat bee on a garden flower, after indulging in a bit of flower nectar, decided to show off a rather fearsome and alien-like display of it’s mandibles and mouth parts.

A little macro of a tiny sweat bee in one of the garden flowers. I found this little pollinator drinking nectar from the flower and then making some interesting weird faces with a droplet in its mandibles.

Or maybe a dotted blue?..or? Not quite sure as minute differences in these tiny butterflies make them rather difficult to identify if you’re not an entomologist or lepidopterist. Going on my best educated guess though and hopefully it’s correct but, if someone more knowledgeable knows I’m wrong then please feel free to correct me. 😊
