There are two main types of dragonflies in BC. The big blue ones and the little red or yellow ones. The red or yellow ones are called meadowhawks.

They like to perch on the ground or on low vegetation around ponds and even freshly mowed lawns.

Space Art Monday: Martian

Mars Martian

Mars Martian

Many science fiction writers have imagined what extraterrestrial creatures live on Mars.

Spacecraft observations have shown that Mars doesn’t have vast amounts of water.

Close-up images of Mars revealed ancient volcanoes and smaller channels where lava activity had been in the past.

Do people really know Who lives on Mars? This Mars Martian just might!

Bug Art Wednesday: Garden Tiger Moth

Garden Tiger Moth

Garden Tiger Moth

Tiger Moths are among the prettiest moths of all. The Garden Tiger Moth is one of the largest in BC and it has a wingspan of about 55mm and is found throughout forested areas of BC.

The bright colours of the tiger moths are there to warn predators not to eat them! At night time some of their predators such as bats don’t see the moths’ bright colours.

Tiger moths emit their own ultrasonic sounds to warn the bats that they don’t taste very good.

Space Art Monday: Young Stars

Young Star

Young Star

Scientists using the Hubble Space Telescope have seen young stars forming in clumps of gas.

When the universe was between 3 billion and 4 billion years old, a time when galaxies possessed massive star-forming clumps, young stars formed at the greatest speed.

It has been a mystery as to how these star clumps came to be as astronomers have not yet seen them form.

Now that scientists have recently uncovered a young star-forming clump, less than 10 million years old, a star mystery could be solved.

Bug Art Wednesday: Hairy Rove Beetle

Hairy Rove Beetle

Hairy Rove Beetle

The Hairy Rove Beetle looks like an ant from a distance because of its similar body shape.

Its wing covers are short but they are folded so intricately that you’d swear that they couldn’t possibly fold up that small!

They are about 20mm in length and are mostly black with light grey markings across the mid and lower body. They like to eat other bugs.

Space Art Monday: Mercury Messenger

Mercury Messenger

Mercury Messenger

The spacecraft Messenger crashed into Mercury and ended its mission last week.

Messenger mapped Mercury in unprecedented detail.

They discovered that Mercury hosts a strangely offset magnetic field and confirmed that permanently shadowed craters near Mercury’s poles have deposits of water ice.

Messenger was the first probe ever to orbit Mercury and the second spacecraft ever to study it up close.

They did however miss getting any images of the mysterious “Awaka” creature.

Which I have drawn here.

They are very small and can survive in the harshest climates!
