The day that Gregor woke up as a cockroach , the ants were marching one-by-one. The whole colony of bees were buzzing with the news that poor Gregorivitch had met his demise.

small and creepy with a lot of legs. perhaps they think for themselves and are really, really just trying to get by. but at the end of the day i am too so i really don’t care about insects. that might not make me very nice but i was never one of those kids who played in the sand with the bugs and the caterpillars, i’d much rather be doing something productive like reading or meeting people or learning something new. and that’s just how i am now – i am a social, people person.

another irritant – or perhaps just the thing you wanted to see. Ant, Moth, butterfly. Flies can be stately can’t they. Wings, legs big big eyes.

The insect fought valiantly against the window screen, yet it made little difference. Whether in or out, it would always be drawn to that impassable barrier as though its raison d’tere was sealed within the meshing.

Six legs and beady eyes.
All the more better to creep with.
These crawlers, scavengers creep with all their might.
Making you itch and scratch.
Fears and pets, they resemble both.
Praised as well as killed.
The truth behind such creatures is,
They make our planet whole.
Creating a cure where there was none,
Being the centerfold of our ecosystem;
Keeping the world together one egg at a time.

a small arthropod animal that has six legs and generally one or two pairs of wings.
• informal any small invertebrate animal, esp. one with several pairs of legs.
Insects are usually placed in the class Insecta ( see also Hexapoda ). The body of a typical adult insect is divided into head, thorax (bearing the legs and wings), and abdomen. The class includes many familiar forms, such as flies, bees, wasps, moths, beetles, grasshoppers, and cockroaches. Insects are the most numerous animals in both numbers of individuals and of different kinds, with more than a million species in all habitats except the sea, and they are of enormous economic importance as pests and carriers of disease, and also as pollinators.
ORIGIN early 17th cent. (originally denoting any small cold-blooded creature with a segmented body): from Latin (animal) insectum ‘segmented (animal)’ (translating Greek zōion entomon), from insecare ‘cut up or into,’ from in- ‘into’ + secare ‘to cut.’

i used to have a massive phobia of insects. I even have a scar from one, because my dad threw a plastic one at me as a joke, I thought it was real and ran super fast and fell over. Last night I dreamt I was an insect myself and it wasn’t so bad, my phobia is leaving me. I can even pronounce the word out loud whereas before I couldn’t

As I was walking out in the meadow one sunny summer day, I stumbled upon a curious 6-legged little fellow. He tipped his hat to me as he scurried up the bean stalk and continued on his way. I never heard from him again.

The insect-like creature was jerking with rage inside the glass. The spirit inside was angry, and there was only one way to calm it: to set it free and let it kill.

A small, thin, brown coloured twig moved gently and hesitantly through the veld. The insect was avoiding predators.

a bright, shiny surface, a little greenish, but mostly black. They scramble and crawl and all I do is watching them and counting their legs and try not to touch them or kill them. My every move becomes so strong in the eyes of such little creatures.

The beautiful little creature crawled across my arm.
He tickled and wiggled
‘Til I couldn’t take it anymore!
He was the cutest little bug I ever did see.
This little insect was looking at me!
