Lady Gaga’s New Outfit

Lady Gaga (@ladygaga) seems genetically predisposed towards garish and outlandish outfits, but this latest one may take the prize as the oddest one as of yet.

Phyllodes imperialis - Pink Underwing Moth caterpillar
A New Outfit For Lady Gaga?

OK, OK – Just kidding. 😉 In a similar vein to Donald Trump’s rogue toupee, this is actually a Pink Underwing Moth (Phyllodes imperialis) from the Springbrook National Park in Queensland, Australia.

But who knows? If Ms. Germanotta sees this post – not a total impossibility – perhaps it’ll give her some inspiration. 😉

The Wig Is Loose!

Donald Trump’s iconic and oft-lampooned toupee has tired of being a public spectacle and has fled the limelight. It was last seen hiding at the Posada Amazonas lodge in Peru’s Tambopata National Reserve.

Megalopygidae
Trump’s Wig Has Gone Rogue!

A recovery team tried to apprehend the wayward hairpiece but found out the hard way that its fluffy exterior concealed a set of poison spines that inflicted excruciating pain, rashes, blisters, inflammation, and breathing difficulties among the hapless team members.

All the while, as the recovery team retreated in agonized disarray, it was heard muttering, “You’re fired! They’re fired! Everyone’s fired!”

NOTE: This is actually a megalopygid moth caterpillar from Peru. It’s the larva of one of the Flannel Moths. It was, however, photographed at the Posada Amazonas lodge in Peru’s Tambopata National Reserve and it does have concealed poisonous spines that can inflict excruciating pain, as well as: rashes, blisters, inflammation, and breathing difficulties in people who are allergic to its venom.

Sleeping Jewels

Amid the strife, pain, and rage inducing events of the world there are also small wonders to behold – if one is wise or lucky enough to find them.

Sleeping Insects Bejeweled With Dew

Macro photographer Miroslaw Swietek was wise enough to find these sleeping jewels and capture their beauty and we’re lucky enough that he shared the images with the world.
