Insects are all around us. They can be annoying, ugly, scary, yet, they are a part of our lives. This week’s PHOTOS OF THE WEEK highlight these bugs, as maybe a work of art, or yet, something to get acquainted with. Photographers with the right equipment can get photos of these animals that we can learn to really love. I hope you enjoy these PHOTOS OF THE WEEK:

We hope that, when the insects take over the world, they will remember with gratitude how we took them along on all our picnics.

In nature a repulsive caterpillar turns into a lovely butterfly. But with humans it is the other way around: a lovely butterfly turns into a repulsive caterpillar.

It is common knowledge now that we depend on insects for our continued existence; that, without key pollinators, the human population would collapse in less than a decade.

Despite its dark veins, the transparency of dragonfly’s wings assures me of a pure, innocent world.

How still the woods seem from here, yet how lively a stir the hidden animals are making; digging, gnawing, biting, eyes shining, at work and play, getting food, rearing young, roving through the underbrush, climbing the rocks, wading solitary marshes, tracing the banks of the lakes and streams! Insect swarms are dancing in the sunbeams, burrowing in the ground, diving, swimming,—a cloud of witnesses telling Nature’s.

“She sat down in a weed patch, her elbows on her knees, and kept her eyes on the small sterious world of the ground. In the shade and sun of grass blade forests, small living things had their metropolis.”
