#beetle

Yet another set of friends- these ones are based on the western tiger beetle and the dot-lined white moth. Tiger beetles are speedy predators that can tolerate the hot sand beneath their feet by staying on the move and high off the ground on their long legs. I decided to finally break my no-moths challenge for cold because the fluffy dot-lined whites I see around here are just too cute, plus they have a great pop of orange to offset a cold blue color scheme. ☀️❄️

@nastytaxi​ submitted: lookit this handsome devil’s coach horse beetle i found in the park the other day! i guess in british folklore they’re said to contain part of the original apple of sin which is metal but also he’s never done anything wrong ever

A lovely lad! There’s all sorts of folklore about these pals, but I agree that this lil dude has never once done something wrong and never will. 🖤

@giganeura​ submitted: A whole gaggle of friends! First’s a Spiny-Backed Orbweaver, I have no idea who the second and third friend is other than some species of Horse Fly, fourth’s some kind of Robber Fly, fifth’s a beauty of a Mantis, and sixth is some form of Beetle!

All found in Clinton, SC

Great collection of pals! I would say the second pal looks like a male Tabanus calens, which is definitely a horse fly, and the robber fly is a female red-footed cannibal fly. The mantis is a Carolina mantis and the beetle is a common green June beetle :)
