The ball-bearing treehopper (Bocydium globulare), native to South America. My favourite "go home evolution, you're drunk" insect. The purpose of the balls on the pronotal extensions has yet to be definitively explained.

Pelagia noctiluca, (Águilas, Spain) by Alfonso Gonzalez: In Latin, Pelagia means "of the sea", nocti stands for night and luca means light and As its name implies P. noctiluca has the ability to bioluminesce. Light is given off in the form of flashes when the medusa is stimulated by turbulence created by a ship’s motion or by waves. This flashing is only of relatively short duration and gradually fades. #Jellyfish
