Pupa Body length: 7 mm | Ångermanland, 1 exposure 55 The pupa in the image might be a Cassida sanguinosa, which is the most widespread thistle-living species in Sweden. There are three or four tortoise beetles that are mainly associated with thistles (in Sweden). Tortoise beetles are among the species that undergo a complete metamorphosis—that is, they evolve from egg, to larva, to pupa, and finally become fully formed insects. Between the larval and final stages, the beetle is totally dormant, a pupa.

The yellow-faced bee builds its nest in cavities above ground. They often utilize existing cavities created by beetle larvae digging themselves out from the wood of trees. The bees are also known to nest in woody herbs and shrubs, like the raspberry. With their strong 36 jaws, they hollow out twigs, creating holes where the female can lay her eggs. Musk beetle Aromia moschata Body length: 26 mm | Uppland (Väddö shooting range), 1 exposure These beetles have rugged jaws that connect to the long maxillary palps and the somewhat shorter labial palps.

Their bodies are often covered in thorns, bristles, and hairs. But when it comes to armor, they are meekly equipped. It was once thought that robberflies survived by drinking the blood of livestock and larger mammals, but we now know that they hunt insects, though some also prey on spiders. The fly in the image might be the species atricapillus, but it might also be some other related species. “TO SEE, BUT NOT BE SEEN” is perhaps the most important survival strategy in the animal kingdom. For millions of years, the prey have been refining their methods of avoiding detection, and the predators have become better at detecting them.
