People lament the loss of their "normal" and will do anything to get it back yet they did not notice the injustice and cruelties of life prior March 2020.I said for years to people that if they bomb innocent people in the middle east they will bomb you.And here we are, they gave us a system of wars on innocent people and turned animals into bar codes, experimented on them etc, in fact if you were adjusted to the old "normal" you are not very well and more than likely blind to what is happening right now.You can shove the old normal where the sun dont shine it was rubbish.And let those psychopaths carry on with their luciferian garbage, people have not even noticed that people will no longer be allowed to eat meat, worms and photo copied animal cells are now on the NWO menu.How about that for poetic justice.

European Apple Sawfly - Hoplocampa testudinea
This last while seems to have evolved into a Hymenopteran showcase, unintentional as it was. The initial plan was to just showcase the Dauber Wasps and then move onto another order of insect. But then I found a Yellowjacket queen searching for a spot to make residence and now this surprising find on the windscreen! This little creature is another new specie of Sawfly to add to the blog! While joyous, it also means I need to identify it, and then go and make sure I haven’t misidentified any previous species in older pictures. While this new specie resembles the Tiny Yellow Sawfly, the orange and black head patterning of the head separates the two along with orange-colored shoulders (darkened on this individual). It may look like other Sawflies on this blog too, but those are much larger and far more distinctive. It is a mountain of a process, and yet it’s over something so very small, crawling around on my fingers. For anyone looking to identify insects, don’t let the challenge discourage you; let it inspire you to learn more about all that lives around you.
As the name suggests, this Sawfly is adventive to North America, hailing from Europe. Apples seem to be its food of choice, especially for the larvae. Aside from maybe some crabapple trees in my neighborhood, there’s little for these insects here, but that won’t stop them from searching. They may resort to feeding on similar fruits if they have to, though I feel this would need to be addressed in a follow-up. For now, let’s focus on apples: the larvae seemingly burrows into the apple’s flower after hatching and consumes the seeds as the fruit develops. It also feeds underneath the fruit’s skin, which can leave tunnels similar to those of wood-borers and leaf-miners. They repeat this process across multiple apples which can result in poor or stunted development of apple fruitlets. After a summer of feeding, they fall to the ground with the apples and pupate through the winter, emerging in the spring as an adult, like this individual. Though a bit of a nuisance, the affected percentage of crop doesn’t seem t0o severe, but when taken in conjunction with other pests and multiple areas, the lines become blurred and more research needs to be done on my end. As a precaution, wash your apples before eating them and be wary of any apples with channels visible through the skin. For more info, I recommend viewing this source.
With this, we’ll take a break from Hymenoptera for now and resume showcase on other insect orders. Next week will begin with another new insect that’ll bolster the numbers of an elusive but intriguing order. One who starts in water and emerges onto land.
Pictures were taken on May 13, 2021 with a Google Pixel 4.

authors whose works don't revolve at all around themes of anti-bigotry or fascism but that nonetheless include nazi references in its antagonists or otherwise make them bigoted are so.
like you lack so little confidence in your villain on its own that you have to reflect severe real-world issues even when they're not relevant.
it's so tactless. graceless. its the opposite of marvel going "this villain really wants universal healthcare and he's killing children to do it." it's saying "hmm we're worried this guy killing children isn't enough, let's make it worse."
you don't have to do that. just let them be.

so turns out i despise making wip updates and all that jazz, but i popped in to say i finished insect poison!!! for real!!! it's significantly shorter than i thought it would be (around 34k) because i guess it decided it wants to be a novella, and i actually got an idea for a new wip so i wasn't going to argue and try to make it 60-80k like i had originally planned.
objectively speaking, the book is not good. it starts strong, but around halfway-3/4 of the way through, you can clearly see where i stopped having so much momentum and started struggling with a Writing Identity Crisis because i realized that every project i've gotten over 15,000 words into in the past four-five years is something recycled from when i was younger, insect poison included, and i was really concerned i'd never generate an idea of my own again.
then... i started reading again.
who would've thought that consuming content can help you remember what kind of content you like?? and help you realize what kind of content you want to make???
anyway, i'm starting a new novel! i have no clue what i'm doing. i'm going to structure as i go, name characters as i go, figure everything out while it's happening instead of ruining my excitement for something new while i'm still planning it. i don't want to keep drudging up old ideas right now. i have things i want to come back to someday, but i think i need to reassure myself that i can write a book that's entirely new to me. and i don't think i'm going to do traditional updates for it, either. i might do ask games, excerpts, and maybe a wip intro once i figure it out, but wip updates make me... not want to write, because the more i write, the closer i get to an update and... yeah. no.
so here's to insect poison, which taught me how to write prose again, and to my new wip, which will hopefully teach me how to write on my own again.

Hey can anybody who knows a bit more about gastropods than me let me know if the things in the circle are eggs or something else? I am inclined to think eggs bc as you can see in pic 2 there’s more right by the slug, as well as just how they’re all grouped together, but I’m unsure and they look a lil weird compared to pics I saw online. I also have been checking on it constantly so I know these are a very new development ? Any help would be appreciated :’) I’m not sure what else they could be BUT eggs and if they are I wanna make sure to prepare for them.

A forest tent caterpillar made it's cocoon on a paper towel in the goat barn so i took it into the house where it'd be safer on March 30th and yesterday it emerged! It was so small, a little under two centimeters!

I may be working on AU things 👉👈
I’m still gonna make full refs for the main antagonists, but I’m doing some stylized drawings for ‘em too for fun! I’ve got a WIP below the cut, content warning for body horror
Oh fuck that’s a whole vaguely human insect. Oh fuck the bug is insulting your fashion sense oh god

There’s some stuff I gotta fix in the final version, but uh
