After a long hiatus, the Monday Mystery returns!
1. What is the genus of the big, colorful animal? (3 points)
2. What is the genus of its hitchhikers? (3 points)
3. This image is heavily cropped to better show the little hitchhikers, but the original exposure also captured a third arthropod. What was it (2 points), and how does it interact with the two species pictured here (2 points)?
The cumulative points winner across all mysteries for the month of February will win their choice of 1) any 8×10-sized print from my insect photography galleries, or 2) a guest post here on Myrmecos.
