Dunno which one. A pretty one.
A spider is an arachnid and not an insect.
8 legs, 6 legs. 8 legs, 6 legs.
they seem to have an awful lot of legs....they would appear to be closer to prawns than ladybirds
or are you too new to remember that?
Disers even made an albumn of songs dedicated to the isopod.....whilst high on doritos
one landed on me recently, stayed for ages wandering about then flew off into the sunset. Butterflies are good also. Not sure why but they seem "clean" whereas I wouldn't want any old normal fly landing on me.
(although occasionally blood, which is kind of awesome and creepy)
and flies feed on rotting food, dog shit, anything they pretty much land on.
Ladybirds are cool, and are mutually beneficial, especially in the garden - they feed pretty much solely on aphids and other small plant killing insects, while not giving a hoot about people or anything else.
They also hibernate together which is really cute, and you can find huge clutches of them huddled together and if it's in your house there is literally no negative to leaving them be unless you have an irrational fear of them.
Also that stuff people always think is wee or waste matter when they hold them or fuck about with them is actually their blood. they release some because it has a nasty taste and smell so they can hopefully then get away. Pretty fucking punk.
It's clearly this chap:
That's one handsome motherfucker.
