A bee as seen in Skyrim.


"A surprising number of insects survive in Skyrim's climate, many thriving in the lower, southern areas of the province. Dragonflies can be found in a great many places, and while catching them can be a daunting prospect, the reward is well worth the effort. It was beyond the scope of my research to determine whether the orange and blue dragonflies are fully different breeds or merely simple color variations, but through experimentation, I found that the orange dragonfly, when combined with the very hardy barnacles found along the coast, transfer some of their flighty nature, giving the herbalist some very nimble fingers."
Herbalist's Guide to Skyrim[src]

Insects are hexapedal arthropods, often very small, that belong to the animal kingdom. Insects live in a vast array of different habitats around Skyrim. Most of them can be harvested for food or potion ingredients by approaching them and selecting 'catch.'
