    To see more wildlife with unique features:

    Antennae are awesome! All insects have them, although they look can very different from species to species. Often called ‘feelers’, an insect’s antennae are so much more than simply tactile receptors. They are covered in olfactory receptors and can function much like a nose. That’s not all though—some insects, such as mosquitoes, can detect sound with their antennae. And, flies use them to gauge air speed. Monarch butterfly antennae act as a solar compass that helps orient them during migration! I could easily go on and on because antennae have so many purposes and designs. They truly are crucial and unique structures! Insects are lucky to have them. {Thysia wallichii spotted in India by nightjar6}
