This is the latest of many bizarre insect images the entomologist and photographer Piotr Naskrecki posts at his website The Smaller Majority. He found these characters in Mozambique’s Gorongosa National Park, where most people think wildlife means only those hairy things with four legs, the what-do-you-call’em. Oh, right, vertebrates. So boring.
Why on Earth is it that people think we need to go to outer space to find alien species?
