Red cotton bug ( Dysdercus cingulatus ) 
Like other true bugs, Dysdercus cingulatussucks fluids from its host plants. The only part of the cotton plant affected by this pest is the flower and the seed capsule or boll. As this develops, the insect thrusts its rostrumbetween the carpels and sucks fluids from the still soft seeds inside. Micro-organisms are admitted in the process and may make the boll contents rot or the lint become discoloured. Meanwhile, the seeds wither, the fibres may fail to expand and the boll may abort. When the seeds of a host plant ripen and it becomes unsuitable, the adult insects migrate to new host plants of the same or different species. While away from their hosts, they feed on nectar and fruit of non-host plants, and can survive for several days without food. They seem fond of citrus fruits, but this may merely be because there are often citrus plantations in close proximity to cotton fields.
As well as cotton (Gossypium), Dysdercus cingulatus feeds on a number of other crop plants including okra (Abelmoschus esculentus), muskmallow (Abelmoschus moschatus), hibiscus, white jute (Corchorus capsularis), citrus and maize (Zea mays). It also attacks trees including silk cotton tree(Bombax ceiba), kapok (Ceiba pentandra), teak(Tectona grandis) and the portia tree(Thespesia populnea).

Honey bees are a good thing until they find a home in yours. We are surprisingly dependent onhoney bees. No other species plays a more significant role in producing fruits and vegetables we take for granted—and their population is in decline.

Yellow tail Damselfly.
Damselflies are insects of the suborder Zygoptera in the order Odonata. They are similar to dragonflies, but are smaller, have slimmer bodies, and most species fold the wings along the body when at rest.
All damselflies are predators; both nymphs and adults eat other Insects.

There are several layers of reflectors in the insect’s exoskeleton with green being the most common colour. This helps the beetle blend in to the surrounding foliage. A shiny, colourful beetle may look dazzling in a museum, but in the wild they have no problem hiding from predators. 
Many beetles are iridescent, meaning they reflect several wavelengths of light. Their colour appears to change depending on the angle the sun hits them, and this is a surprising form of camouflage.

Aglais caschmirensis, the Indian tortoiseshell, is a species of nymphalid butterfly found in the northern regions of the Indian subcontinent, primarily in the Himalayas.

This species is found on flowery slopes and other semi-open rural habitats in the foothills of the Himalaya, at altitudes between about 1000-4000m. It has a wingspan of 52–63 mm.
Both sexes feed avidly at the nectar of wild and cultivated flowers.

Early or late in the day when temperatures are cool they bask on bare ground, or on rocks, with their wings fully outspread. In very warm conditions they settle on soil, and hold their wings erect.

This one looks like a mantis and although by fly standards is pretty huge, like all flies it's fast and of the 30-40 odd shots that I took, this is probably the only one which looks passable!

Sweat bees belong to the large family of bees known as Halictidae.
The green sweat bees are among the most strikingly noticeable of our native bee species with their metallic green or blue-green sheen.

He coolest bug I've ever seen. It's butt glows in the dark like two eyes 👀 😎 #glowworm #insectsofindia #India
Hoverfly, sometimes called flower fly or syrphid fly, make up the insect family Syrphidae. As their common name suggests, they are often seen hovering or nectaring at flowers.
Kingdom: Animalia
Class. : Insects
Family. : Syrphidae
