After feeling like a failing mother and then learning that my daughter is pregnant I thought that would be a good theme to use while I catch up on my doodles. One thing that the past few weeks have taught me is that even though I can teach them about life the best I can, I can’t control their actions. They have to learn from their mistakes.
I chose this one because from what I read they build a safe nest but when she feels that she and her family are in danger she’ll move ALL of them. She will even baby-bird them by chewing the food for them.
The Mother Bug
I have never heard of such a thing but it looks like a normal beetle. The White-margined Burrower is considered to have maternal instincts. She will throw herself in harm’s way in the burrow if a predator is to invade their home but also brings them seeds for dinner.
