Apparently some vegans are telling people not to eat honey to support bees.STOP. STOP NOW.DO YOU EVEN KNOW HOW BEES WORK?Buy honey (local if possible) -> support beekeepers -> support bees.I swear people don’t even think this stuff out. Beekeepers provide bees with an environment in which they can live, and are encouraged to thrive. Bees then have a big huge giant person who can deal with any threats to the hive. Yes, honey is a winter food supply for bees, but beekeepers (unless they’re dicks, in which case they’d be shooting themselves in the foot) will NEVER take too much honey from a hive, and will always ensure that bees have enough food. Think about it, you’re not going to starve a source of income/hobby, are you?So now.Support beekeepers.Support bees.buzz.

Now that’s one mighty big stick insect. 
This 50cm gargantuan stick insect is one of the biggest phasmids in the world, but she’s only one of a handful of Ctenomorpha gargantua ever found…

bug of the day on Flickr.
This big stonefly showed up at the mercury vapor lamp at one of our moth nights out at Montague last summer. I believe it’s genus Acroneuria. You can see how insane it was at the sheet that night - I count 2 micro moths, 2 caddisflies, one weevil and one unknown insect photobombing the shot :-). From July 2013.
