Tonight’s mystery is a classic “what is it?”, but with a philosophical twist:
1. What is it? (Order; 5 points)
2. Is it an insect? (1 point) Why, or why not? (4 points)
Points will be awarded to the first person to give the correct identifications, and to everyone whose justifications for 2) seem well-reasoned. Yeah, it’s subjective. But that’s kind of the point, isn’t it?
The cumulative points winner across all mysteries for the month of June will win their choice of 1) any 8×10-sized print from my insect photography galleries, or 2) a guest post here on Myrmecos.
