A rare straight hair day. My left side seems to be around 2 inches longer lolol 😓
Just started watching and reading One Piece, WHAT A SHAME that I didn’t do so earlier.
Luffy is just precious ;;; ;
Not the most flattering of photos, but here is what my butterfly bodice looks like all finished! I’m excited to get the matching shorts done.
I mean not that excited….I was to lazy to make a new bobbin of black thread for my machine so I spent the whole day painting instead (new level of laziness, right there) but I should get the shorts done tomorrow!
I got a bunch of nyx’s macaron lipsticks and sarah ( silhouetteofagirl ) helped me test them.
Seriously tho taking a moment to appreciate how good my self image is today
This is perhaps one of the most beautiful animals I have ever seen. I believe it is in the Family Ctenidae. She was found in the Ecuadorian Amazon. Photo: L. Jacobs
The first TUMBLR GIVEAWAY for scientific research was such a success that I had my sister create 16 more.(the first batch was mailed yesterday and on their way to those who pledged- again- thank you!)The next 15 people who pledge $10 or more towards my research on spiders in the Amazon will receive one of these custom designed bumper stickers.
ONLY 3 DAYS LEFT to pledge! And a handful more stickers!
Lantern Fly (Pyrops cf. lathburii, Fulgoridae, Hemiptera)
Pyrops is a genus of planthopper (the name lantern fly is deceptive) that occurs primarily in southeast Asia, containing about 60 species.They are fairly large insects, with much of the length due to an elongated, upcurving, snout-like projection of the head. The wings are generally brightly patterned in contrasting colours, and they are popular among collectors.
The head of some Fulgorid species is produced into a hollow process, resembling a snout, which is sometimes inflated and nearly as large as the body of the insect, sometimes elongated, narrow and apically upturned. It was believed, mainly on the authority of Maria Sibylla Merian, that this process, the so-called lantern, was luminous at night. Carl Linnaeus adopted the statement without question and coined a number of specific names, such as laternaria, phosphorea and candelaria which are still used today to illustrate the supposed fact, and thus aided in promoting a belief which centuries of observations have failed to confirm.
