14/365: Zombie This fly had been infected with fungus when I noticed it clinging to the top of a tall plant. A lot of fungi that impact insects actually influence their behaviors, convincing the bugs to crawl up onto something tall. When the bug dies, the fungus releases spores into the wind. Pretty awesome system!

I’m pretty amazed by what a little paint and some new hardware did this for kitchen. I wanted the space to reflect our personality and I’ve been trying to create “forest vibes” in this house.. so obvi, my fave color (Mediterranean Olive by benjaminmoore) was perfect.. and the black hardware from amazon (voted on by you guys) was the perfect finishing touch. This whole project was under $100! 🙌🏼 Swipe for the before! It’s awesome. 💚🖤✨

14/365: Yellow Jacket Yellow jackets generally build nests underground and aggressively defend them. If you disturb a nest, you're likely to be stung several times by multiple angry wasps as you flee the area.

13/365: Potter Wasp Potter wasps get their name from one genus of the group that makes a little pot from mud and saliva and then lays eggs inside. However, all potter wasps build their nests to some degree, whether they make a pot or some other structure. Some use cavities made by other insects or humans and line them with plants or soils. Others build nests underground. This wasp was taking advantage of the nectar produced by this black-eyed susan for a bit before moving on its way.

12/365: Extinct I got to tour the California Academy of Sciences insect collection today!!! I love, love, love seeing big research entomological collections like these, so I was thrilled. Among the many awesome things we saw was a box of extinct insects. This butterfly is the Xerces blue, a species that went extinct in the 40's, and it represents one of just a handful of insects we KNOW have gone extinct. Insects are (I believe) underrepresented on endangered species lists. There are so many species that only live in one cave or in one stream on top of one mountain, but we have no idea how many there are of vast numbers of species. And while insects suffer from extreme lack of knowledge (hard to know the full life history of all 1.5 million different species!), there's also the fact that a lot of people just don't like insects. It can be hard to convince enough people they should care about saving an insect species to want to put in the time, effort, and money required to protect it. Butterflies are lucky because people like them for being showy, pretty, and visible. As a result, butterflies are relatively well-documented and studied AND people care if they exist. The Xerces blue is therefore one of the poster children of endangered and extinct insects, a butterfly that is no longer a part of our planet, but has inspired conservation of habitats for wildlife and the conservation of insects. Sad to know boxes of Xerces like this are the only way to see these gorgeous animals today. This little box is insanely valuable as it contains 6 of the only examples of this species left on our entire planet!
