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.


#2

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


#3

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


#4

i’m glad you included the finger for scale


#5

connected with this pal last year. still think about the look he gave me:

“fuck off”


#6

I love a good bird of prey


#7

He was tiny, japes. Tiny.


#8

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.


#9

#ARGH!


#10

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


#11

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 -


#12

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


#13

I love a weevil, me.


#14

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


#15

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


#16

They’re mean to trees though.


#17

I nearly thought this pal was a twig


#18

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)


#19

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.


#20

it’s a hippie moth
