Good day to everyone on the Hive blockchain!
Here is another edition of Insects of the World Curation Report where we bring to you the bests out of the bests in the community. We all know that even among the panoply of posts that are published in the community daily, a few usually stand out.
Before going into the business of the day, it would do us a lot of good if we can refreshen our memory concerning what is required of us in the community. A user will do almost nothing wrong if they can stick to the following RULES:
There must be multiple images of the insect in question, shot from different angles by the author himself and capturing the essential features. Images should be well resolved and not edited in any form besides resizing.
Images must be accompanied by DESCRIPTIVE TEXT or a nice article relating to the images. The community is not photography, remember. Tell us something about the images you are posting.
The SCIENTIFIC NAME of your shown species should be written in the title. It is also APPRECIATED if you are adding a full identification and as many details as possible to your chosen species, such as appearance, diet, peculiarities and more.
The chosen insect should be unique in a way. 10 posts with images of the same species will definitely be boring. SO please avoid common insects except there is something unique about them that has rarely been seen in the community.
- Engagement is key! There is no community without engagement.
Here are our CURATED POSTS for this week ^^
|@raindrop7||Butterfly Photography : Elm Spanworm Moth ❣|
Namaste 🙏 to all my dear Hiveians! It's my honour to join @insectsoftheworld community. I was searching about this kind of community where I can share my love for insects. So, finally, I got it!
|@akukamaruzzaman||California 'Sumatran' Anthophora Bee (Anthophora californica)|
As a macro photography lover, bees are one of my favorite macro objects. Whenever I see bees, I'm always interested in capturing their image. Here is the California anthophora bee (Anthophora californica) which was taken by me yesterday.
|@friendlymoose||When the flower blossoms, the bee will come (Srikumar Rao)|
Maybe it is that I'm paying more attention to it, but I seem to spot a lot more bees than I did the years before. There are a couple initiatives here too. Authorities don't mow the weed in the parks as frequently as they used to so there are a lot of wild flowers.
|@sreypov||Three Different Colors Of White Peacock Butterflies & Dragonflies|
Hi dear Hive friends! This morning after I wake up I was looking everywhere around my apartment. Then I saw so many white peacock butterflies stopping in the grass and flowers.
|@deltasteem||Caelifera insects, Chrysomya megacephala insects|
Insects are one type of small animal that consists of various kinds of uniqueness and one of them, if we pay attention, of course they have different shapes and sizes.
That brings the selections for this edition to a close. Like I always say, if you have any questions/concerns/clarifications about curation in the Insects Of The World Community, feel free to contact any of the community moderators via DNA Discord.

DNA - Densifying Nature-Appreciation
The Insects of the World Community is part of the awesome DNA project (Densifying Nature-Appreciation). DNA searches for HIGH-QUALITY posts that aim to DESCRIBE and determine the BIODIVERSITY AROUND YOU with added EXPLANATIONS and INFORMATION. For these informative posts DNA offers a CURATION SERVICE using the @dna.org account. It is also a CURATION TRAIL. At the moment DNA is also the home of #amazingnature hosted by @adalger, the #aquaticsentinels hosted by @juanbg for all posts about the marine world, the #featheredfriends hosted by the lovely @melinda010100 🦢 for all you great posts about our feathered friends and the #fungifriday hosted by the amazing @qwerrie 🍄 for all your posts about fungi and mushrooms ^^ .. But we hope that more nature related communities will join and participate in this gigantic and ambitious nature project, or maybe some Hiveans start their own little project there ;)
AQUATIC SENTINELS COMMUNITY
FEATHERED FRIENDS COMMUNITY
FUNGI LOVERS COMMUNITY
All the communities have their own Moderators using the DNA-Curation service and and the whole AN Moderator Team also are set as DNA-Moderators. This external cross-community curation-service is hoped to raise awareness of the DNA project to Hiveans out there and aims to bring all the great nature-related communities together to help all the nature-loving Hiveans to bond together ^^
If you are INTERESTED in DNA, please do not hesitate to ask about it, or directly JOIN US in the DNA DISCORD ;)
