Hello folks who wonder if people who run into Jeff Bezos ever ask him why their Amazon package delivery is delayed,

Let's say your partner breaks up with you and kicks you out of your house because you used up the last toilet paper roll to wipe your tears after watching countless dogs welcoming soldiers home youtube videos or your family kicks you out of your house because you are 40, unemployed and still playing games on your xbox in the basement.

What do you do next?

You first post on social media, so you can get some digital sympathizers and then you find a place to crash for the night, it can be anything from the bus stop bench to a nearby park or even a dumpster if you are looking for some warmth on a chilly night.

Male Bumblebees once fully grown will be asked to leave the colony to find their "true" purpose in life. They will then go on this incredible journey to discover their true self, make the world a better place, make others laugh, inspire the next generation and find joy in the little things.

Not really, they just want to get laid. But that takes a while before they can find future potential queens. Till then they will spend time laying down their scent on different objects like tree trunks or rocks to attract those queens and patrol that area. But when night falls, they will need to look for a cozy, warm place to crash the night. This is where flowers come into picture.

Below is one who had a rough night since it missed the daily morning meeting at work.

You know this one clearly hasn't had it it's morning coffee since it bumps its head against the low ceiling chandelier when it was woken up. 

And now we will look at the reigning flight champions of the insect world - give it up for the dragonflies.

You see, Dragonflies can fly in any direction they choose i.e. upside down, sideways, backwards and also turn on a dime.

This is because each of their four wings is controlled by separate muscles. Hence they can increase/decrease the flapping rate of each of those wings independently. You will often spot them indulging in aerial maneuvers like a helicopter.

Damselfly males are one of the most possessive lovers in the insect world. Yes, they will make the females delete all the contacts and messages from their ex-partners before getting into a relationship and they will also scoop out any sperm left by other males before mating. You see, damselfly mating is a distinct event where the males will grab the female by the neck and have the female attach the end of her abdomen to its genital area(which is in the middle of the body, don't judge!). They will stay in this distinct position from a few minutes to a few hours based on how possesive the male is. More possessive males will even hold the female by her neck and make them lay eggs in the water after the mating procedure so that she does not go on a date with other males.

Below is a pair of damselflies indulging in the mating behavior. The male is on top and the female on the bottom.
