Do you feel yourself getting the creepy crawlies whenever you think about bugs? Or do you find them fascinating and get excited whenever one sneaks its way into your home? Whatever it is, we are pretty sure that you don’t want to miss out on Ali Beckman’s unique works.

Ali uses insects that were either donated, purchased, or found dead to create amusing cartoons and highlight the key roles insects play in our environment. And besides this little fact, we’d like you to know that her work more often than not highlights the importance of loving yourself and finding the confidence to say that, yes, you can do anything you put your mind to.

She uses the insects to get her point across and creates art that’s all part of her project called “So Fly Taxidermy.” Ali’s work started out as a hobby, but soon after, it blossomed into a popular Instagram account (@soflytaxidermy) where she posts her illustrations for over 178k people to see!

Everyone would feel that unless they know that Greta few months back supported so-called farmer protests in India (as did Rihanna, Susan Sarandon, Piper Perabo and Trevor Noah), without completely realising the reasons for protests or issues surrounding it. She pretty much supported farmers' rights to continue to burn crop residues and force governments to buy grains, even though they rot in godowns - all of which contribute to global emissions. She also encouraged protests (which turned violent) against laws which would have curbed corruption in agriculture sector that kept Indian Indian farmers poor and trapped in debt. Even the ex COO of United Nations Sustainable Energy slammed her for her lack of knowledge about issues. Total prop. Her parents should be investigated for child abuse.
