check out a dragonfly or a damselfly. ANSWER: . A dragonfly doesnt fold its wings. A damselfly, moth and a butterfly does fold its wings upwards.
fastest flapping flight. white-throated needle-tailed swift at 170 km/h (106 mph) The fastest diving bird (not flapping) is the Peregrine Falcon I believe your wrong. It's the Hummingbird. Kat 2800
It depends on the species. In some species the females have wings, however many cannot fly. Most male stick insects of the winged species can fly.
Hummingbirds, the tiniest feathered creatures in the world, have wing-beats so fast that they appear as hazy as an airplane propeller in motion. Analysis of slow-motion pictures indicate that these wing beats may be as fast as 50 to 75 times per second. wrong it is the male club winged manikin its w…ings beat at 107 times per second (MORE)
most insects have four wings, execpt for fleas who lost them and flies and mosquitous who have two
A June Bug but there are many others, if it's a housefly but shinyit's a bottle or blowfly
homming bird its wings beat so fast that it can stay in the place while in th air
The male club winged manikin has a wing beat as high as 100 per second- hummingbirds are typically about 50 per second. The Manikin uses the very high speed as a courting manuever, and not for regular flight.
Flight allows insects to occupy new ecological niches. Trees tend to grow their most nutritious parts (the reproductive flowers and fruits) up high to keep them safe and flying insects are able to them. Flying insects are harder for predators to catch. Also, many insects are predators themselves and… this gives them an advantage in the predator/prey arms race. We can't forget that a lot of flying insects don't even eat as adults. They use wings to their advantage mating in the safety of the air, migrating to common locations to mate, and flying off to distribute their eggs to safe locations. (MORE)
Alot of insects do! I know a ladybug does. All insect groups have wings, save for silverfish and fleas. Silverfish never had wings, fleas lost them in their evolutionary history. Insect wings can be folded in plain view or hidden beneath shields. Beetles have modified their first pair of win…gs into the familiar shields, as have earwigs! (MORE)
They have 2 pair of wings so technically they have 4 wings all together. The wings are usually found on the thorax of the body which is located in between the head and the abdomen
Yes. The only group that never had wings is silverfish, and the other wingless group, fleas, once had wings but lost them.
They are actually quite different! An insects wings are a fixed shape and have an ecto-skeleton (like bones) in the outside and look very much like a leaf. Often there are two pairs together which can over-lap. A birds wing has the bones on the inside and they are hollow. The feathers spread open to… increase the surface area and aid in giving "lift". There really aren't many similarities at all. (MORE)
Nope. Flies always have 2 wings, and some insects like silverfish have none. However even insects with 4 wings can get one torn off by a bird.
Ballooning Spiders- which are not actually insects (they have 8 legs and a cephalothorax) climb to the end of a tall plant stem, shoot out strands of silk webbing and use the wind to 'fly' or travel long distances. They can retract and shoot out more silk as necessary to change direction.
Your Answer is.... As you ask for the animal with wings, so here is the answer:. "Bat". Regards,. M. Saad Shahid. email@example.com
The wings are attached to the last two upper segments of the thorax. These are called the mesothorax and the metathorax.
Insect wings are part of a bug's skeletal system. The wings ofinsects are made of chitin, which is a light, extremely strongmaterial that also makes up an insect's exoskeleton.
Hummingbirds have extremely fast wing flapping rates. The averageflaps is 50 times per second, but can go as high as 200.
An insect flapping its wings does not create oxygen any more than you waving your arms does. Any kind of flapping of fanning motion redistributes air (think of waving your hands to clear away smoke), so it may move around the oxygen that is already in the surrounding air.

Glasswinged butterflies are beautiful insects with transparentwings. Their wings allow them to hide from predators. Thisbutterfly is found mostly in Central America.
Most insects have wings but some do not. Some only have wings for part of their life.
An example of insects with hairy wings are caddisflies. They areclosely related to butterflies and moths and actually have two setsof hairy wings.
It could be a fly, a flying ant, a mosquito, a midge, a gnat, .... or any of several million other species.
Flying insects are one of three members of a group known as hexapoda (literally, six walking appendages). True winged insects do have wings as adults. Every one of them. Two pairs of them, in fact. Sometimes the top pair hardens and becomes a protective shell for the insect and the lower pair of win…gs (beetles), sometimes the lower pair becomes nothing more than a vestigial, and is only used to stabilise flight (bees and some flies), sometimes both pairs of wings are developed for warning against predators and for courtship displays (butterflies and moths). A class called parainsecta (of which silverfish and firebrats are members) has all the characteristics of flying insects apart from the wings. The question of whether an animal has wings or not is entirely down to evolutionary necessity. (MORE)
A flying red ant, it looks like a termite actually, only the male ones have the wings. i don't know what they eat, there are LOTS of them in Texas at summertime.
Most stick insects don't, but Pink Wings do. They have beautiful wings, and are graceful and elegant.
yes some people think about ants, which don't have wings, but in the ant family, some do indeed have wings
Some insects without wings are the worker ant, the earwig, thespringtail, and beetles. Silverfish, fleas, and firebrats are alsowingless insects.
Insects have wings, so that they can fly about, just like birds do , they can then find food. They have wings so they can escape predators and, in some cases, catch food of their own.
A insect. I don't believe there is a difference... But I might be wrong. Try google.
Yes. Only four groups of animals on Earth have been known to fly: the insects, the pterosaurs, the birds and the bats. The insects started flying about 350 million BCE, while the pterosaurs, the next group, started about the same time as the dinosaurs. (some 220 million years BCE). So, insects arriv…ed in the skies 130 million years before any other animals. (MORE)
an insect that has six legs but no wings is a beetle because if you count you can see it has six legs but obviously it cant fly so it has no wings. this is written bey an expert that goes to a high standard school so this piece of info is real, you can believe.
Windows of insects differ from the wings of birds in that they haveno features. They use a thin membrane to catch the wind. the wings of a bird are made out of feathers and creates a shapedacross its length like the wing of an airplane, a cross section ofthe wing, is seen to cause lift from aerodyna…mics of their shapedescribed above. Since the air creates lift when it has to gofaster over the top of the wing than the bottom; this phenomenon ofair going at different speeds, cause the lift in the wings of abird wing. (Or as seen in an airplane wing) Also, birds createjumps in their flying ability when they push their wings down withmuscular thrusts while fullly opened, and pick their wings back uphigh with a light, but quick, easy but with a punctual rhythm ofwing lifting that coincides with perfectly with downward flaps,which cause lift and initial velocity/height. Birds have amazinglystrong control over how they fly, much more than insects. . Insect wings are made out of rigid cells but are delicate ifdamaged. They rely on fast flapping to create lift, they don'tglide as much using open wings like birds. For insects, if they areflying, they are nearly always flapping their wings, and usuallywith quite a speed of frequency that is much faster thanbirds.. The wings of insects consist of simple membranes of chitin. Birdwings are bone-and-muscle limbs covered in feathers. With theexception of flies, insects have four wings. Birds have two. Bird and butterfly wings have tremendous differences, a bird's wings are made of bone, skin, and feathers whereas a butterflies wings are made of membranes stretched between hollow tubes that protrude from the butterflies body. Instead of feathers, butterflies have colored scales covering their wings. Also a birds wings are an adaptation of their front legs with leaves them with two legs for walking and two wings, a butterfly has six legs for walking and two wings which are not an adaptation of their legs.

There are not any insects that have just 1 wing. Most insects have1 set of wings containing 2 full wings and this is how they fly.
Yes, all winged arthropods are insects. Of all arthropod groups/classes, it is only the insects that have wings.
The humming birds have the fastest wing beats, but there are many different types of hummingbirds and I would suggest looking them up and not just taking it from me. I could be wrong
Wings are only found in insects. There are no crustaceans that havewings. Crustaceans are design to live in water, not fly.
They could be a stick insect, OR a bug with no wings. That is some Ideas from: AL33241
In most groups, nothing. In beetles and earwigs, the elytra(shields), but these are really modified forewings, so really stillnothing. :P In butterflies, the wings are covered BY small scaleswhich also carry the pigment for their vivid colours. There's one group of small flies where the pronotum (pa…rt of thesmall shield covering the thorax) has become enlarged and coversthe wings like the elytra do in beetles. They're called Celyphidae,look them up if you're curious as to how this works. (MORE)
Adult bedbugs and silverfish are two insects that do not havewings. There are over one million species of insects foundthroughout the world and there are many more to still bediscovered.
All insects have 3 rows of 2 legs and altogether they have 6 legs .
Insects usually have 6 legs, the body in 3 main parts (head, thorax & abdomen) , and wings.
The fastest bird in the world is the Peregrine Falcon with the top speed of 200 miles per hour or 350 kilometers. The Falcons top speed is achieved when performing a power dive to ambush prey. The Peregrine Falcon is a bird of prey which means that it hunts other small animals for food. Peregrine Fa…lcons eat mainly small birds, but will hunt small reptiles and rodents. They ambush their prey mid air diving from above at incredible speeds (MORE)
Palaeodictyoptera do not have six wings, the extra appendages are known as prothoracic paranotal lobes and are basically chitinous plates which may have been used by these prehistoric insects to stabilise flight profiles.

yes there some insects which have no wings as ants expect queen ant silverfish is also insect that has no wings
Yes, they're the only arthropods with wings, and all insects have them save for silverfish and fleas.
Insect wings are part of their exoskeleton - I've found sourcesstating they evolved from external gills in very smallproto-insects that barely needed the extra surface to leave theground, and the wings became bigger and more muscular from there. Bird wings are technically arms, with the same skelet…al structureas our arms, or any vertebrate forelimb. They evolved from the armsof theropod dinosaurs. In insects, this would mean wings evolvedfrom one of their pairs of legs, but insect wings have nothing todo with legs. Their flight methods are very different as well. Birds flap theirwings, much like a theropod dinosaur would have moved its armsduring hunting or balancing. Insect wings move in rapid swimmingmotions, often in '8' patterns to create lift with both upstrokeand downstroke. The only bird I know of that does this is thehummingbird. (MORE)
