Flower Chafer - Dicronocephalus wallichii bourgoini
The genus Dicronocephalus (Coleoptera - Scarabaeidae) involves seven currently recognized species distributed in Asia. This one in the photo is a male of Dicronocephalus wallichii bourgoini, endemic to Taiwan.
These beetles are medium to large sized (20-32 mm); they have a relatively broad flattened body and distinct sexual dimorphism. Males are larger than females, posses antler-like clypeal horns, and distinctly prolonged tarsomers.

American Robin (leucistic) | ©Robert Lewis
This partially leucistic American robin, Turdus migratorius (Passeriformes - Turdidae), found on Alvarado Road in Berkeley (California, US), has an interesting pattern of white and normal feathers, both on the head, back, wings and tail and also on the orange breast, caused by a failure to incorporate melanin into the feather structure - but only for some feathers.


Bitch!!!!!! Sit the fuck down and shut the hell up bitch!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

rhamphotheca:

North American Giant or Worm Millipede (Narceus americanus/annularis complex), Fontanelle Forest, Bellvue, NB, USA.
This is the largest species of millipede in the United States, getting up to 4.5 in in length. They live in moist forests in much of the Eastern 2/3 of the country. As with most millipedes, they are detritivores, and may exude a noxious chemical mixture from their back ends.
This specimen was about 4 inches in length, and was found on a trail descending form the upland forest down to the Missouri River.

I saw like five of these this weekend it was awesome

A male semipalmated sandpiper (Calidris pusilla) is recorded as flying over 10,000 miles in the past year! This tiny bird also made a remarkable six-day, 3,300-mile nonstop flight across the Atlantic Ocean from James Bay to South America, before moving on to his wintering area in Brazil…
