scaptia

GUYS I LEARNED SOME SERIOUS SHIT TODAY.

SEE THIS LITTLE FUCK HERE WITH ITS GOLDEN ASS?!

ITS SCIENTIFIC NAME IS SCAPTIA BEYONCEAE AND IS NAMED AFTER THIS PIC OF BEYONCE

AND THIS THING HERE

THIS IS CALLED GAGA MONSTRAPARVA, WHICH LITERALLY TRANSLATES TO GAGA LITTLE MONSTER

so basically in conclusion, if you discover a new species you get to fuckin name it and these scientists must have some pretty interesting soundtracks to listen to as they like dissect shit and stuff

#61 - Green-eyed Kangaroo-Fly

Scaptia singularis Kangaroo Fly  - a tabanid. It’s a definitely male though, because the eyes join together. How did I discover my mistake? Because I spent the last few mornings in Jarrahdale, where dozens of this fly’s womenfolk were enthusiastically trying to bite through steel-capped gumboots and tires, in search of blood.

Look at that beautiful bee-mimicking abdomen. Look at that wonderful nectar-sipping proboscis. Look at those huge blue-green eyes. LOOK AT THEM.

Taken with a Samsung phone. I love my phone. I love it so much…. preccciiiooooouuuuusssssss
