insects are so other. hard to think of them as related to us, and closer to us than the tree they are eating. weird breathing methods, bones on the outside, adults with no mouthparts, multifaceted eyes, tongues on the ends of their feet, chemical signals, responses and defenses... it's all so amazing physically and spiritually.
