A remarkable eye structure from the Thomisidae family. An absolutely stunning spider!💚 Unlike this photo, this species is mostly found on or under flowers, so they can ambush the visiting insects. Thus also called the flower crab spider.
The flower crab spiders are the species for which the popular name was coined, because of their crab-like motion and their way of holding their front legs in an attitude reminiscent of a crab spreading its claws as a threat.
Nisitrus vittatus is a rather coloful looking cricket found mostly in southeast asia. It is commonly known that crickets chirp via a wing rubbing mechanism called stridulation. Interestingly, there is actually a relationship between a crickets chirp frequency and the temperature of the ambient environment, called Dolbear’s law.
