Discover the intricate beauty of insect wings and learn about their incredible functionality. Get inspired by stunning images and interesting facts about these delicate and essential structures in the natural world.
This guy is just 5 minutes old. I released him when his neon green wings and disco gold body hardened, turning to a dark brown and bronze-green.  The cicadas are a superfamily, the Cicadoidea, of insects in the order Hemiptera. They are in the suborder Auchenorrhyncha, along with smaller jumping bugs such as leafhoppers and froghoppers Cool Insects, Bugs And Insects, Insect Wings, Insect Art, Beautiful Bugs, Beautiful Butterflies, Cicada Tattoo, Cicada Art, Green Wing

Like butterflies, different species of fruit flies decorate their wings with a great diversity of spots and patterns. Digging deep into a single gene that produce pigmentation in the flies, a group led by UW-Madison biologist Sean Carroll has found the molecular switches that control where the pigmentation is deployed. The finding explains how common genes can be controlled to produce the seemingly endless array of patterns, decoration and body architecture found in animals.
