Most of us view insects as at best, something to ignore, and usually as a pest or something that should be killed. Insects frequently are parasitic (such as bed bugs), or transmit disease (such as mosquitoes or flies), or destroy crops, and are viewed negatively around the world.

However, insects act in many beneficial roles, such as through pollination of plants, and keeping the population of other insects and animals in check, and also acting as food sources for animals such as birds.

Insects are some of the most diverse animals on the planet and consist of over 50% of known living organisms with over a million different species. This diversity leads to different shapes, sizes, colors and behaviors. However, many insects are green, to help them blend into leaves and other vegetation, and this bright green color definitely stands out in photographs:
