“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)

Beautiful weevil found at the Jemengo toe Indigenous reserve into the mountains of osa peninsula in Costa Rica.
Curculionidae.
💙💙💙  Did you know that if we join all the species of vertebrates on earth, we can get about 50000 species of them. And just the biodiversity of beetles, just Beetles, we have about 400000 named species of them, and there are thousands that we need to discover...
🐞
Arthropods are the most diverse group of animals on earth. with 1.3 million named species. The strategies they developed along the millions of years of evolution allow them to have great success.
🐞
Practically there is no place on earth where arthropods were unable to live.
🐞
But now they are in trouble just because of us,
*Climate change,
*Agrotoxics,
*Water pollution,
*Habitat loss,  
*Industrial pollution,
*Light and noise pollution,
*Biological factors, including pathogens and introduced species and
 *Overexploitation
🐞
And ironically if we think about all this things are killing us also!
🐞
I think it is time to rethink our relationship with nature...

One from yesterday at @ecoturisticolatarde  Always happy when i can find this jewels ...
Black and Green Dart Frog. Dendrobates auratus...  This frogs are diurnal, and not easy to potograph. They are shy and never stay still.. so you need to take the time and patience to get some shots if you are photographing them in nature...where they live.  Frogs in the genus Dendrobates are diurnal and display aposematic coloration. These frogs have the ability to sequester lipophilic alkaloids from food they eat, these toxins are stored in their brightly colored skin.  #wildlife #nature #naturephotography #ig_nature #ignature #nuts_about_nature #bns_nature #waycoolshots  #na_natures_art

Portrait!

Dendropsophus microcephalus

🐸Remember.. dont manipulate amphibians when you are out taking pictures, their skin is highly permeable and they are vulnerable to toxics. Imagine when you are in the middle of the jungle probbably you are full of OFF or some insect repellent to try to avoid mosquitos and other insect bites.. and you can transfer the toxics to frogs... just we always need put #naturefirst before photography...

👉Somertimes you can find creepy stories in the rainforest... a little beetle infected by entomopathogenic fungi...  Entomopathogenic fungi are those that parasitize various species of insects and cause their death. The infection begins when the spores or conidia of the fungi adhere to the external surface of the insect (cuticle), thanks to the fact that they have a mucous layer with proteins and glucans. Subsequently, said spores or conidia germinate and develop special structures called apresoriums, these produce enzymes such as lipases, proteases and chitinases that help destroy the insect cuticle and give the fungus the possibility of reaching the animal's body cavity.  In the internal cavity, a series of elongated cells called hyphae form, invading the insect's body, absorbing nutrients and releasing toxins that lead to its death. Subsequently, the hyphae emerge from the body of the insect and form asexual reproductive cells called conidia or sexual called spores, in order to spread and infect other insects  Worldwide, between 750 and 1000 species of entomopathogenic fungi have been described.

How not to be in love💚  Cascade Glass Frog - Sachatamia albomaculata.  Centrolenid frogs derive their common name from the transparent ventral skin, through which internal organs can be seen in many species. Most Centrolenids are a shade of green, ranging from light lime green to dark green. Members of this family also have green bones as a result of green bile salts. Studies have shown that glass frogs contain a unique pigment in their skin that reflects the same wavelength infrared radiation that plants do, possibly another adaptation for concealment. 
Species of this group occur from Central America south through Venezuela, Bolivia, Argentina, and southern Brazil in high montane forests with streams.

Join me to discover the beautiful Costa Rica!  🌿Its jungles, nature and biodiversity captivated me when I visited it in 2018. So much so that it will soon become my new home!  I am very excited to share my experience with you with this Nature Macro Photography Workshop. A program that was created to give you the same opportunity that I had when I fell in love with Costa Rica.  📷I will lead this week-long experience photographing wildlife in the rain forest and cloud forest. As tropical forests, they host a large percentage of the Earth's biodiversity. Most of the people who visit these jungles generally come to see large animals, maybe the most charismatic, such as birds, monkeys, sloths ... and if they are interested in plants, they come for the great variety of orchids that are in Costa Rica. All these are going to be part of our Workshop too. But these forests hide an amazing biodiversity of arthropods, frogs, and reptiles.  Arthropods for example are easy to see and have a fascinating natural history. All kind of flora and fauna is waiting to be captured by your lens. You will get a fairly vary portfolio!  🦋Macro photography allows us to discover a new universe that remains invisible to our naked eye, but through the lens we can discover structures, colors and even behaviors and we can venture in a new way to see and appreciate the world of the small.  🐞Take a look at our website www.macrowildphoto.com
to find all the information about the Workshop as well as the requirements to travel to Costa Rica or send us an email to workshops@macrowildphoto.com
