Did you know so many interesting insects that there are?
- An aphid worth over a hundred dollars?
- A katydid that is morally pure?
- A lacewing that has no legs is made of metal and you can drive around it — it is not an insect it is a car?
- And many more?
But of all of these the most amazing is the Lovehead Wasp.
The lovehead wasp is in love with love.
It loves the oak tree.
It plants its larva in the oak tree and develops an Oak Gall.
But lovehead wasp learned that its galls were hurting the oak tree. It decided to devote itself to a life of fasting and renunciation.
But then the Acorn said to that old wasp “Don’t do that mister wasp there is plenty of tree for both of us.”
And they drank jam and honey till the sugar ran out their ears!
This is a true story. If you want to learn more about the fascinating field of entomology pursue it like a dog pursuing a scrap of meat — “LET NOTHING PREVENT YOU FROM YOUR GOAL.”
Not weariness, not the fear of what your friends will think of you, not shame.
YOU WILL BE AN ENTOMOLOGIST JUST LIKE YOUR DEAR OLD UNCLE PA!
