My name is Joshua im, 22yrs old, and soon to be a Dr. of Entomology in the, oh so near future. I have a variety of interests, but for the procrastinating purposes of Tumblr I post for the humor in life that tie in with my key interests.
This big stonefly showed up at the mercury vapor lamp at one of our moth nights out at Montague last summer. I believe it’s genus Acroneuria. You can see how insane it was at the sheet that night - I count 2 micro moths, 2 caddisflies, one weevil and one unknown insect photobombing the shot :-).
Photographer Marianne Kjølner snapped this pair of photographs of a bizarre tree in Denmark. Of the photo she says: “This old pink house is situated at the old dunes, a few hundred meters from the west coast, a very windy place were there isn’t much that can grow. So the tree can only grow where it has shelter.”
