Erik Nitsche: Insects
Artist: Erik Nitsche
The insect and spider kingdom includes some of the world's most fascinating creatures, which are extremely important in maintaining the balance of nature. Although some species are destructive to mankind, many others are beneficial. Most insects and spiders provide sustenance for larger creatures, thus perpetuating the life cycle of all the Earth's wildlife. The habitat of insects and spiders includes grasslands, meadows, trees, shrubs, ponds and streams. Many species pollinate flowering plants, thereby ensuring the plant's reproduction. The Dung Beetle and Eastern Hercules Beetle are known as scarabs and help keep soil fertile for cultivation. Spiders like the Black Widow, the Yellow Garden Spider and the Jumping Spider spin webs that capture garden pests. Insects like the Periodical Cicada and the True Katydid produce familiar summer songs, while the Ebony Jewelwing, Lady Beetle and Monarch Butterfly are delicate specimens of nature's sublime beauty.
