A huge fire has broken out in the Brazilian federal government's national film archives, the Cinemateca, home to the World's largest collection of Brazilian film. In April, workers there warned that neglect from the Bolsonaro administration was causing a fire hazard @BrianMteleSUR BrianMier Videos and pictures

Before becoming flying sparklebutts, fireflies spend most of their lives as grubs. If you treat your lawn for grubs it'll kill any firefly larvae. This one hit home for me because my mom got mad at me for not treating the lawn! @7StellarJays Jen 📷🦉🐝🐍 Videos and pictures

Here’s the followup to my 5-minute talk at #EncontroDeColeoptera: A gallery of selected specimens collected by W.S. Blatchley in 1922–23, while traveling in six South American countries, with additional collection data! https://t.co/NrC8sQNBEB (Anthaxia concinna, det S.G.

This firefly bumped into my hand & clung on, so I snapped a quick shot before it flew off! @AgeOfArthropods Chris Wirth Videos and pictures

A fun experiment—I followed several fireflies w/ my camera as each beetle flew up from the grass—out of >90 shots, I got one in focus! #FireflyFriday @AgeOfArthropods Chris Wirth Videos and pictures

S Arizona is having the wettest July on record, and the mosquito hunting has been FANTASTIC. While setting up a CDC trap, I got into some cholla. At that moment, Ae. papago - maybe the rarest mosq in the US, showed up, and I had to decide between photos or cactus removal. #UFbugs @BiodiversiLary Lary Reeves Videos and pictures

Our poster, “Hot Flies & Needle Ants” was a huge success at the conference today… also crazy great to be back to seeing each other and talking science in person! Fingers crossed we all make it to present more of this work at #SICB2022 in January… @lovetheants James Waters Videos and pictures

Yesterday after work, jumped into a river for some freshwater snorkeling. Also took my 1st ever dslr images underwater!  They're not great 😅 but it was the most photography fun I've had in a long while. Cant wait to do it again and take on this learning curve. @Anuranton Anton Sorokin Videos and pictures

Another exciting ant find this weekend! This time near Joseph, Oregon. This beauty looks like Polyergus bicolor, a species that may have only been collected three times in the last 50 years! The nearest record is from Alberta, Canada, so also quite the range expansion. @mareklborowiec Marek Borowiec Videos and pictures
