If you took all the insects and animals in the world and counted them , there would be more insects than all the other animals in the world put together!!!

Insects have a hard exoskeleton, three pairs of jointed legs, three body parts, compound eyes and two antennae.
All Insects start their life as eggs. Some hatch out to become larvae,  just like my Tobacco Horn- worm caterpillars below.  Then they emerge as adults( beetles, wasps and  hornets, butterflies, etc.).

                                                          It can also turn into a moth.

Others, such as mantes, dragonflies, and a few others hatch and become nymphs. Mantis nymphs look exactly like the adults, just smaller, and without wings. Dragonfly nymphs look like little aliens, with a huge bottom lip to help it catch prey, such as minnows, mosquito larvae and eggs, etc.

But no matter how big or small, colorful or plain, they are all beautiful in their own little way (:
