Some wood boring wasps (Megarhyssa atrata, Tremex columba, Megarhyssa macrurus, Dolichomitus imperator, Sirex sp. Urocerus gigas) made out of Cardstock. I drew them, coloured them in, then cut them out with an exacto knife, and stuck them to my insect frames to make it look like as if they were ovipositing into them.
I wanna say I love your wasp art! And this is so friggin cool! (Megarhyssa yyeaahhh) What a cool idea wow!!!

Absolutely beautiful images from Botswana, the colours and patterns are breath taking. It’s so easy to forget how incredible nature can be. 7
‘Being above the ground at such low elevations, and having the ability to precisely maneuver, was like gliding over an enormous painting and being able to create brushstrokes at will. As soon as I saw the landscape from above I knew there was potential to create a special body of work.’

Day 8: Favorite non-skull bone
Vertebrae! Specifically the atlas :’)
I love how much they vary in shape, they are such interesting bones.
Around a month ago, I discovered a monarch butterfly egg on a milkweed plant. I decided to take it home and raise it, documenting its growth and change through a series of photographs as it metamorphosed from a caterpillar to a butterfly.
