Usually when we talk about bugs or insects, we imagine something repulsive and gross, and even scary. Probably more than one of you even has a phobia and can’t stand those little critters. But it might surprise you that there are some bugs that have such interesting forms and colors that you entirely forget they are related to the cockroach living under your sink in your student dormitory.
Not all insects are built alike: some are so stunning, so mesmerizing to look at, that it seems like they jumped, crawled or flew straight out from a fairytale book. Case in point: the gorgeous Flower Mantis that Margaret Neville found in her garden in South Africa.
