Look at my mate (Rolling)

This is a thread for when you establish a bond with a non-human.

This guy was on my desk for a while this morning. I think we shared a moment.

I like to think he’s giving me a kiss here

And lastly a parting thought from him.


I like the cut of this little guy’s jib!


There was this fella yesterday. Not been back and forgot to ask him what he thought of epimer.

I am best at making friends, or at least invading their personal space with my excited face and my phone -

Look at his wee belly!! I wish my belly looked as snazzy.



Rescued a spider from the bath this morning. We are now bonded for life.

I make the vast majority of my insect friends whilst hanging out in bathrooms though -

Monsieur beeington smythe the third -

Lady Wilhelmina weevil -

And milo the millipede -


Those photos blend so well that it looks like you found two beetles and the top one didnae help his pal up


I love a weevil, me.

They’re look pretty cool but they’re bad apparently, evil weevils :smiling_imp:

Only because they decimated food stores for centuries. But that was before fridges, freezers and Tupperware - a weevil truce and reassessment is long overdue.

They’re mean to trees though.

I nearly thought this pal was a twig

Really? But… the eco system! So long as we’re not swamped with weevils, surely everything will balance?

(I have no idea what I’m talking about)

Found this little guy when I was picking our daughter up from nursery - what a champ! Love a good butterfly, though I hate moths. Although actually, is this a moth? Because his/her wings are flat. I don’t know, I’m no lepidopterist. If this is a moth I’m going to have to change my mind and start liking them.


it’s a hippie moth


(me neither… my bf has to kill them for work lots because they’re bad apparently, but only a certain type… I should ask him in more detail before I start declaring things).
