Insects

(technically "arthropods" which include insects, spiders, scorpions, etc.)
Featured Insect
Digger Bee
Digger Bee Web Site
A big gray bee bumped into her cheek, bounced off and continued on its busy buzzing way. Startled, she noticed the air was full of gray bees—a thick wave of them, like a flag floating a few feet over the ground. One or two would drop away, landing and walking in circles on the sand, then fly up again into the flag made of bees. Her own head buzzing with pain, she watched a bee land and then begin to dig, throwing up sand in a fury of effort. A second bee dropped down to challenge for the hole. Buzzing with outrage, both bees wrestled in the dirt leaving a third bee to dive into the contested hole and dig like crazy. Suddenly, like a stripper in a stag party cake, a fourth bee came bursting out of the bottom of the hole in a sizzle of buzz. Quickly, the third bee mounted the fourth—then with a whirr of wings they took to the air, leaving the first two bees with a useless hole.
— Walks Away Woman, Ki Longfellow, page 11
