CAVE IMITATION




Is an order of insects, including dragonflies and damselflies. These are the ones found in the area that I live in. The name odonata comes from the Greek  odonto (tooth) because they have teeth on their mandibles. Encountered the most by me, is the blue one





It's the order of insects that includes moth and butterflies. Also, these are the ones common in the area I live in. The one encountered the most is the white one with a few spots, as spring comes they're the first to announce. Also the one in the middle is common, and I think I have a few photos of it. I also have a butterfly collection


CUTE/SHY OWL
I love owls. 

Photos taken inside Oltenia's Museum, Nature Science Section, in Craiova, Romania, although we weren't really allowed to, I managed to sneak those snapshots.
