Still in the Lavender

And running way late today. If you look, you can see a bit of her neck in this pic. It’s that white disc-looking thing there. Recall, too, that insects don’t have bones like you and I have – but an “exoskeleton”, meaning that the rigidity and protection and structure that our bones provide is for them, instead, provided by their “shells” or exterior construction. So that neck of hers is, essentially, a rigid tube that connects her head with her thorax. Need to do some research, but it’s such a strange looking thing (compared to what I might have imagined, had I thought about it before I saw it). And there’s never anything wrong with purple and green!
