It’s a busy hive of action here at Auckland Zoo as we’re putting the finishing touches on Bug Lab ahead of our opening this Wednesday 20 December! 🦋🕷
We’re lucky to have one of the experts who worked on this project, Te Papa’s resident ‘Bug Man’ and entomologist Dr Phil Sirvid, ready at hand to help us with some of our more fragile specimens – like the birdwing butterfly.
From the creators of the ground-breaking Gallipoli exhibition, @te_papa and @wetaworkshop have created a blockbuster exhibition like no other - with large scale 3-D models, cutting-edge science and interactive stations where you can test how your skills match up with the bugs!
Book your session on our website!

Tawny coaster - This is a relatively common species occurring primarily at low altitudes on scrubby grasslands, dry open woodlands, beach hinterlands and flowery gardens. It has however been recorded as high as 2000m in the Western Ghats of India. The butterfly is seen in the highest numbers in the monsoon seasons, and is quite scarce at the peak of the dry season.

Sprinkler systems on, nets on, cues and toms in, bugs 🐛 out, hopefully I can get a return on an intensive, trellis planting experiment over summer.

Para mí fue muy especial lograr esta foto pues la libélula es mi animal de poder. Esperar en la naturaleza con paciencia es otra forma de hacer mindfulness.

The Parasite piece begins! This is part of a triptych that I am working on for a show in February. More info later. I will include as many beautiful parasites as I can! Mixed media on wood panels. It's going to be wild! #art #artist #artistsoninstagram #ink #mixedmedia #wood #parasites #parasite #nature #insects #weird #dark #darkart #fabercastell #drawing #draw #creepy #beautiful #wormintheappleseye

Flies are in the order Diptera which stands for 'two wings'. It is easy to tell if an insect is belongs to Diptera because they have two forewings and behind each of them is a tiny halter (they are the shape of a comma). This is what the hind wing has been modified into and without them the insect would not be able to balance during flight. .
