Insects are the most common creatures on earth and they represent approximately 80% of the world’s species. There are around 900,000 species of insect that are known in the world and it is estimated that the total individual insects alive at any time is 10 quintillion (that is a 1 with 19 zeros behind it). We see insects every day but there are many more around us that we never see, mainly because we are not looking for them.
From a travel perspective, insects are not something many people look for but occasionally we see a beautiful butterfly or some strange insect that looks like an alien creature. When we do come across an insect that catches our attention we stop for a moment to check it out and then we keep going on our way. That is exactly what I do except I normally take a few photos.
Don’t forget to keep an eye out for insects when traveling! You may see something interesting and it might prevent you from being stung or bitten.
