Is there an insect that has wings that look like leaves?
I think the best way to put this is that their size depends on the size of the frog, but they are black or brown, smelly and contain indigestible insect parts, eg. moth wings, beetle shells, grasshopper legs. They look like little rocks but if you look at them closely you can tell that there frog droppings :)
The female stick insect mates (some can lay eggs without mating), sticking her eggs to leaves or just on the ground. She may lay any number between 100 and 1200. The eggs often look like plant seeds and sometimes take several months to hatch. Baby insects (nymphs) look very like their parents. As each stage (or instar) of the insect grows big enough, it moults, that is, it sheds its outer skeleton, which it eats…
Leaves are under continuous attack by insects, viruses, mold, and fungus. Many of these can cause growths. Many things that look like growths may be cleverly disguised insect eggs, or shape-changing insects in camouflaged cocoons. Some growths on leaves are caused by chemicals emitted by an insect. This causes the leaf to grow a little lump of leaf cells, making a safe spot to protect the insect's eggs.
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.
Rhodendrons are evergreen so this means that they carry leaves all the year round. As all leaves have a natural lifespan the shrub will continue to lose leaves 12 months of the year but as long as the amount of new leaves equates or exceeds to the number falling off there is no problem. If the leaf fall is excessive you need to look at things like disease,insect infestation or drought.
To make sure that the insects are contained within the trap, the edges of the leaves have finger-like ciliathat lace together when the leaves press shut. These long, hair-like projections make the plant look like it has spiny teeth; but the cilia are really only used to latch the trap shut. There is an upper limit to the size of insect that the trap can accommodate. At most, traps are about 1 inch long, and…
