“In her photos as well as in her pictorial works of art, Bandurek stands out for her visual acuity and sensitivity at capturing the natural world. Something striking in her photographic work lies in the sensitivity she possesses to spot beauty in the tiny, along with her ductility with which she captures the photographic instant, the detail. She holds a unique sense which enables her to pay attention to that which not all of us could see, highlighted by the passion she gets from nature”

(Natividad Marón. La Voz Joven)

“Some bees have magnetite in their abdomen, and we know that they are affected by the Earth's magnetic field. Bees do their famous dance on the vertical surface of their honeycomb by converting the orientation of their flight to food, in relation to the Sun, into  an angle danced with respect to gravity. If the comb is turned so that  bees must dance on a horizontal surface, where they can not express direction in gravitational terms,  they become disoriented at first. Finally, after several weeks, they align their dances to the magnetic compass. Moreover, a swarm of bees placed into hivewithout cues for orientation  build their comb in the  magnetic direction it occupied in their parental hive.  Pigeons, certainly no duffers at homing, build a structure made of magnetite between their brain and skull.  This magnetite exists as single domains and can therefore function as a magnet.  The world is full of signals that we don't perceive. Tiny creatures live in a different world of unfamiliar forces. Many animals of our scale greatly exceed our range of perception for sensations familiar to us. […] What an imperceptive lot we are. Surrounded by so much, so fascinating and so real, that we do not see (hear, smell, touch, taste) in nature, yet so gullible and so seduced by claims for novel power that we mistake the tricks of mediocre magicians for glimpses of a psychic world beyond our ken. The paranormal may be a fantasy; it is certainly a haven for charlatans. But “parahuman” powers of perception lie all about us in birds, bees, and bacteria.” Stephen Jay Gould  #bd_macro #master_in_macro #beautiful_insects_japan #macro_turkey #ip_insects #macro_kings #insects_of_our_world #turklikeben_macro #exellent_macros #ip_connect #invert_macro #insectsphotography #macrophotographer #ig_macro #wholelotta

There are three main ways in which animals produce color: through pigments, structural colors, or bioluminescence. Structural color is the result of selective light reflection while pigmentary color originates from selective light absorption by the electrons of pigments.
Structural color is a special one, which is the color produced by micro- or nano- structures, and is bright and dazzling. The most common mechanisms of structural colors are film interference, diffraction grating, scattering, and photonic crystal. .
